Nick Melidonis travelled to Ladakh in Northern India with the hope of capturing the remote monasteries in the high Himalayan region for this shot. "The trip would take me across the 5 highest mountain passes in the world. I crossed the Khardungla Pass from Leh towards the Nubra Valley which at 18,380 feet is the highest motorable road in the world. We descended into the Nubra Valley and rested on the valley floor, where I first noticed the camel trains in the distance heading towards the Diskit monastery. I asked my driver and guide to cross a stream and head as close as we could towards a peak where I knew the camels would have to cross, separating them from the snow tipped Himalayas in the background. The sun was starting to set and I could see that the breaks in the clouds produced shafts of golden light moving in and out of the valley floor behind where the camels would cross."
