Bhutanese Rice Terraces

It was late winter in the Himalayan Mountains when we visited Bhutan. Unlike Bali, high altitude and a cold winter necessitate letting the fields go fallow over the winter. Although quite brown in late February, the fields were alive with women singing as they planted the next season’s crop. The air was fresh and smelled of incense and pine. Even though I was only there for a few weeks, I miss Bhutan and hope to get to visit there again soon.

I made this image with my Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP DSLR with theEF24-105mm IS Lens Kit.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn’t intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
