As I said in one of my earlier posts, the ponies couldn’t make it across the Bonte-La pass so I ended up at Soe-Yaktsa without my tent. As a result, I had to take shelter in a house belonging to my horse contractor’s sister.
In the morning as we were preparing to depart for Shana, the landlady wanted herself photographed. As I looked at her through the lens and began to compose the shot, the morning sun combined with a shallow DoF made her look really nice against a smooth, beautifully blurred background. I commented that she looked beautiful. She found that remark so incredibly funny that she burst out laughing - and that is when I decided to shoot her. Not too bad for a hasty mug shot :)
