My travel photography featured in AFAR.

 

 

Annapurna Circuit Trek, Buddhist Temple in Marpha.  This shot was taken very early in the morning, as the monks opened the temple door for morning payers.  I love the contrast of tradition, with the newess of the lock in the door. (Martin Herrera Soler/Martin Herrera)

AFAR is an awesome travel magazine I came across a while ago. It’s been recently awarded as ‘America’s Best Travel Magazine’ by the Society of American Travel Writers (2010 Lowell Thomas Award).  They ran a contest for their April Postcard section and one of my Nepal images got selected.  They also have created a social community of travelers where you can connect and post questions and get answers from other travelers.  If you are among those who like to travel, I highly recommended.
