Pashupatinath Temple, Nepal
Ralph Velasco took this photo in Nepal while on a scouting trip for a future tour for his clients. He says, “Pashupatinath Temple is the most sacred Hindu shrine in Nepal and located on the Bagmati River. This man is a ‘sadhu,’ or self-proclaimed holy man (sadhu is Sanskrit for ‘good man’).”
(Ralph Velasco)

I have photographed in Namibia, Sri Lanka, Patagonia, Easter Island, Oman and Dubai, north India and Cuba with these two Orange County-based travel tours, In Focus with Michele Burgess and Ralph Velasco’s Cultural Tours. Both are outstanding and take you to unusual locations, which I love.
