History and grandeur are incredible. Ignore the wimps who whine about the steps. You can do it. Some Tibetan pilgrims go up those steps on their knees. Go with a guide if possible, much more enjoyable. This is a UNESCO site for good reason. A must. #wintergetaway
Tibet. Lhasa Potala Palace
came to Tibet more than a dozen times, have not taken a Tibetan photo.
This time in Lhasa is quite abundant. I found a group of Tibetan travel photography studios at the entrance of the Potala Palace.
Although I am also a photographer myself, my Canon 5D4 is also professional enough. I can take a self-portrait or let passers-by help to follow the SLR and record the wonderful moments on the trip. However, in the 599 yuan, you can choose your favorite local costumes. You can choose to take the exterior of the Potala Palace or the exterior of the Jokhang Temple in Barkhor Street. There are professional makeup artists to make the overall shape, using the first-line brand. Cosmetics, as well as a very professional and dedicated photographer, the little brother to guide the camera action, and the later retouching is also very efficient. The price is really high!

The highest architectural complex is the Red Palace, which represents religion and is the highest spiritual symbol. Milk wall, aunty soil, white horse grass, and the three essences of Tibetan architecture can be seen everywhere in Tibetan areas, especially the Potala Palace, which represents the traditional classics and splendor of Tibetan architecture.
The Potala Palace photography angle
location is also in the Potala Palace Square, but the viewing angle is indeed a small pool of water artificially manufactured.
In front of the square, you can see the photographer with a long gun and a short gun on the ground, in front of a pool of water, when I first looked at it with curiosity, I couldn't see it, and found a different perspective. It is observed that the two places with the most view are the right side of the square music fountain and the left side of the flag-raising booth.
The Potala Palace is the highest and most majestic palace in the world. It is the most splendid symbol of Tibetan culture. Its majestic architecture and mysterious and holy religious background are the temptations that photography enthusiasts cannot resist.
