Shepherd's Banquet

After about two weeks of camping, the shepherds decide it is time to leave. On the last day they sit together for dinner. Women, a flurry of activity preparing bhakri on firewood stoves. Men chat, passing around a small bottle of liquor, taking occasional sips. The kids sit with them and listen to them under the cool afterglow of the twilight sky....

Picture taking is an art, which you're brilliant at! But... The picture says more about itself thank you can possibly explain! :)

Another great photo, it would be great to sit with these wise people and hear their stories by the light of the fire, so much more worthwhile than sitting slumped in front of a TV watching mindless rubbish!
