Picture of the Yaqing Temple, Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, China

River of Ten Thousand Souls

Photograph by Thierry Bornier, National Geographic Your Shot

Dwellings housing Tibetan Buddhist nuns flank Yaqing Temple in Chinas Garz Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Your Shot member Thierry Bornier traveled here after learning about it from a friend. Relatively undiscovered, the places beauty remains untouched by modernism and tourism, he says. He spent four days near the temple to capture this image with a blue sky and big white clouds in order to give the landscape a 3-D quality.
