Colourful pilgrims

Zoom-in on the crowds of local people attending the Gustor festival, Spituk Gompa, Leh, Ladakh. Ladakh is known at Mini Tibet since the prominent culture, religion and style of dress in this area takes its inspiration from nearby Tibet. There were so many wonderful photo opportunities of the crowds attending the festival, but this is one of my favourites. My attention was drawn to the woman in the lower centre leaning forward a little in a dynamic pose, where my eye was drawn by her white shawl, bare head and the small white space that surrounded her in the otherwise densely crowded venue.
