Photographer's Note

I will take a short break from my new photos from Stockholm.

For many years some of my earliest scanned photos on the site have embarrassed me, among them some taken in Bhutan. My visit to the small Kingdom in the Himalayas was my last journey with an analogue camera, and my photos from Bhutan were among the first scans I posted here.

It took me a while to reasonably learn how to handle the scanning process. Some photos turned out well, others looked disastrous. Unfortunately some of the disasters ended up on TE.

I have posted new versions of a few such bad scans earlier, now I selected the three worst failures from Bhutan and made new scans. Here is the first one.

You can see the original version by clicking in the box to the right. I sincerely hope you will find the new version better.

Here is the original note from November 2007:

A line of chortens along the road through Choskhor valley in Bumthang district. A chorten is a shrine containing a religious relic such as a sacred book or a fragment of a holy person. There are lots of them in Bhutan, where religion is always present.
