The story behind "Nuns in a snowstorm in Rongbuk monastery, Tibet"

The courtyard turned white within a few minutes, the snowflakes came down quickly. The nuns in the Rongbuk Monastery, the highest monastery in the world at 5000m altitude, were looking for cover. I tried to capture the snow with a long exposure, so that’s why it looks a bit surreal..
