    Haakon, a little belated, but my congratulations, too. As soon as I saw your photo in the competition it brought back vivid memories of when the Tibetan monks came to London some years ago - I think it was the Royal Academy - and produced their dazzling image. I stood and watched them for a long time, patiently placing each sand grain in its correct position, and marvelled at the faith that could produce such devotion to detail with such patience and love.
    After it was completed and had been on view for a while, they apparently gathered it all up, took it to the River Thames and cast it into the water with a blessing. A beautiful gesture. Do you know what happened to the one you photographed?
    Thanks again.
    I was told this one was poured into the Chao Praya River in Bangkok... A Buddhist reminder that nothing lasts forever...
