13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Reflections of Tibet

Tibet is filled with untouched beauty. What you wouldn't see by looking at this photograph is the rapid industrialization and major public works projects, initiated by China that are taking place in Lhasa. Effects of these type of projects soon reach the countryside, and it should always be made a priority that the negative effects of industrialization be minimized. That way, the untouched beauty of the countryside, can remain exactly that, untouched.
