Thubten Droduelling monastry in Thimphu

I was on the search to shoot something where everything is photographed to death, not to mention I was quite late to capture the golden hour light. That’s when I thought if I am little late, why not be late ‘proper.’ A new monastery that was recently opened to public came to my thought and I stuck with it. I waited till I am well past the last trace of direct sunlight, and decided to shoot during the 'blue-light’ hour to capture a subdued detail in the sky instead of a blackhole, which is what I would get if I shoot well into the night.

Thubten Droduelling monastry in Thimphu was built to commemorate the birth anniversary of His Royal Highness the Gyelsay (Royal Prince) Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck. The monastery was consecrated by HH the 70th Je Khenpo (the Chief Abbot) on 5th June 2017.

Love the way the building stands off from the night sky.

Thank you very much.. it was a relatively easy subject, I mean the building wasn't going anywhere after all.. but the composition itself, I must admit, is an cliche....
