WINNER – Daniel J. Allen
‘Tagong Monastery’ by Daniel J. Allen is one of the winning entries for the Rough Guides World Lens Competition
This photo was taken outside Tagong Monastery in Western Sichuan, southwest China. This remote and mountainous region has some spectacular landscapes and is home to a sizeable Khampa Tibetan population. The image captures the real warmth, colour and spirituality of Tibetan life in Tagong – these four women had just sat down for a rest outside the monastery after walking clockwise around the walls several times.
