The buzz of insects is the only noise you hear on the grounds of the Carmelite Monastery in Carmel, California. The nuns maintain a complete vow of silence, a tradition since coming from Mount Carmel in the Holy Land to the California shores in 1602. But they were nice enough to let me photograph their beautiful gardens and even peek into their solemn monastery.
