I was lead­ing a rid­ing tour in Eastern Bhutan when we came across th­ese monks in a monastery over­look­ing the town of Jakar. They were re­hears­ing their ‘black hat’ dance, and although they were not in full cos­tume their ath­leti­cism and the colours of their robes re­ally made the im­age. I used a fast shut­ter speed to freeze the monks’ move­ment, although for much of the time there was very lit­tle ac­tion, so I was lucky to end up with this shot.
