Your Scene

Mar. 16 Scott Bonhard of Laguna Niguel had to make an uphill climb for this photo of the 17th century Tiger’s Nest monastery perched precariously on cliffs in western Bhutan. First, he had to hike to 14,000 feet, then he suffered through altitude sickness. Afterward “we climbed 1,000 vertical feet on stairs,” he said. “We all wondered how they built the monastery.” The trek was part of a group tour he took with 19 people in October. He used a Canon PowerShot SD600.
