Photographer's Note

This is the third and last re-post of a photo from my journey to Bhutan in 2003. The colours of the original scan were awful, even though I didn't quite realize it then. A few months ago I made a new scan, and although it may not be perfect it's really so much better. At least that's what I think. You can think for yourself by clicking at the Original Version in the box to the right.

Here is the original note:

"A view of Trongsa dzong in central Bhutan. There is a dzong in basically every district of Bhutan. It's a fortresslike building containing the local administration and a monastery. In Bhutan the modern society and the religion, lamaism, live side by side on equal terms. The oldest parts of Trongsa dzong are from the 16th century.

Behind the dzong is the modern town of Trongsa. The building on the hillside in the upper right corner is a watchtower, called the ta dzong.

This is scanned from a Kodachrome slide."

I should add that even though the town looks so close we had to drive for another almost 15 km around the long valley to get there.
