Jan-Feb Issue Cover Photo by William Chua
The onset of winter is the rice harvest season in Bhutan. The cover photo was taken by a professional photographer, William Chua, during his fourth trip to Bhutan in late 2017. The photo was taken on the way to Chimi Lhakhang in Punakha, a temple dedicated to Lama Drukpa Kuenlay, who is also known as the “Divine Madman.” It’s an easy hike through the rice paddies and the village of Yuwakha.
As William was passing by the village, he came across the villagers thrashing rice, and took quite a few photos of the activity. The rice plants are folded into sheaves, and let to dry in the sun. The dry sheaves are then beaten, and chaffs are separated from the rice grains.
this is followed by a 8 page spread of my images..
