    This photo was taken at Seda Larung Gar Buddhist Academy. It's around a 14-hour drive to get to Larung Gar [from the nearest city], and the journey is quite tough due to the mountainous roads. This view [shows] small red homes on the left side, while empty green roads [curve] on the other side. The monks follow the lights to [return] home. I was lucky to document the photos there—I was deeply moved by their faith. I plan to [return] to Seda next summer [to make] more photos.

    Fantastic composition Junhui — I love how you framed this scene. Great seeing. I love how the row of lights divide the homes from the land, the red from the green. I wish you included more information in your caption, especially the location of the photo. Maybe you have a story behind the photo?
