Just another day in a monk's life

A monk looks to the east on a chilly morning atop mist covered Kathmandu city. 
I was at Swayambhu one early morning to capture mists shot. Wasn't having much luck that day with compositions. As I was looking around (desperately) for subjects and compositions, spotted this monk looking endlessly at the rising sun. At first glance, it didn't seem like much. Then for some reason I sneaked behind him and clicked few shots. And this particular one turned out pretty well composed.
The HDRish effect was added with Lightroom and colors enhanced with Picnik.
And yeah, unlike me, he's a real monk :-]
