I had spent the day in the mountainous region of Manali, India and the night arrived earlier than I anticipated. Hungry and a little lost, I saw the lights shining on Peace Restaurant. It was a beautiful restaurant and the lighting made the ambiance of the place truly peaceful. Despite my fatigue I took the extra time to try to capture the peace that these lights brought me on this somewhat difficult evening.
