A young Tibetan woman wanders around the Barkhor among a sea of fellow Tibetans.

The dust cloud visible in the photo prevents frequent change of lenses while shooting in the Barkhor. Most of the time, I chose a lens in my hotel room, then shot the entire day with that lens only for fear of dust on my sensor.

note: the Tibetan woman is not as sharp as I'd like her to be. I should've closed down my aperture however, I felt there's enough happening in the photo to warrant publishing in it.
