Nomad herder's tent and flock near lake; Nam-tso, Tashi Dor, U, Tibet
Description: Namtso Lake in Tibet lies 112km Northwest of Lhasa at an altitude of 4718m. To reach it is necessary to cross the Nyenchen Tanglha range of mountains at the Laken-la pass at 5190m. On my visit the weather was poor with heavy cloud and snow. On the morning of departure I shot this nomad herder's tent with the lake in the background and dark skies above. Distances are very deceptive on the Tibetan Plateau and the lake is at least a km away in this shot.
