Zhiyun Monastery - A Grand View

Although the intricate details of the Zhiyun Monastery captured my attention, I was also drawn to the grand view that presented itself at different points while walking up its different levels. I particularly loved this view,  an incredible combination of red/golden doors with the distant Lashi Lake landscape. A great blend of artistry by God and by man.

A similar view to the photo above, minus the frame of the door. Here we can see more of the mountains near Lashi Lake.

A symmetrical composition of the monastery living quarters, with the mountains and wide-open skies beyond the flags.

The temple buildings in the upper section of the monastery. Some areas were under repair, due to recent roof leaking.
