sunrise over bagan (1)
Being back from a wonderful trip to Myanmar I post my first image from that beautiful country. I am still struggling selecting and processing the pictures I brought with me.
From the 9th to 13th centuries, Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan, the first kingdom to unify the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom’s height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.

  1. Spectacular start of your new series of photographs captured in Myanmar. Love the extreme landscape format with the layers created by the mist, and the almost-monochrome feel the image has.

  4. Das sieht echt klasse aus mit dem Nebel. Toll!

  5. Atemberaubend .. wunderbare Tonung. Ich bin sehr gespannt was uns noch alles erwartet.

  6. Ground fog rules! This is lovely.

  7. Such a wonderful atmosphere. The temple tops look a little like a range of mountain tops poking up through the mist! :)
