No mat­ter how high tech your cam­era gear is, it can’t help you re­claim a missed mo­ment. Take the shot of this door­way to the Thikse Monastery in North­ern In­dia. Third-gen­er­a­tion pho­tog­ra­pher Kris­tian Bogner cap­tured it when, ex­hausted (and run­ning late), he reached the 12-storey com­plex, which is perched at an al­ti­tude of 3,600 me­tres. “I could hear this spe­cial prayer cer­e­mony that I was in­vited to go­ing on in the back­ground, but I made the de­ci­sion to stop and take the pic­ture,” he ex­plained. “I knew that the light, the mo­ment and the energy would never be the same. I’ve been back to this place two other times, and I’ve never got­ten any­thing like this.” Take­away: Re­mem­ber to be present when you travel—and to prac­tise mind­ful pho­tog­ra­phy.
