Buddhist prayer flags frame a stupa at Kunzum Pass in Himachal Pradesh, India. “There were plenty of flags around and I decided to wander between them,” says Your Shot community member Quynh Anh Nguyen. “I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve and just waited until I found the right place and the right moment.”
