[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bagan, the ancient capital of Myanmar, where more or 2000 pagodas were built in the same time than in Europe cathedrals were made. An incredible landscape that increases it misterious in the dawn, when there is some mist, creating an unreal landscape.

"To truly experience the splendor of ancient Burma, a trip to Bagan is a must. For over two hundred years, from 1057- 1287, the Burmese kings held court here. Generous patrons of the arts, they adorned their capital with literally hundreds of intricate Buddhist temples and monuments. Although the arrival of Kublai Khan brought the city to its knees, the construction to a halt, and the population to near extinction, Bagan's myriad temples remain". (from http://www.geographia.com/myanmar/myan02.htm#river)

Best regards.

Muy lograda la perspectiva de los templos alejándose hacia el sol. Una imagen muy espectacular.

A juzgar por las fotos, yo habría terminado de monjes y templos hasta el gorro.


Hello Jacobo,
This is a scenery so unreal for a Western eye, with more pagodas as long asd the eye can see..!
Beautiful atmosphere, the mist really adds to this image...
Awesome sunrise atmosphere, very well done!

Hi Jose.
A magnificent sunrise shot. The Pagodas look mystical. Pagodas in the mist look like as if they are in water. The green color is fantastic here.
Thanks for sharing this mystic shot.

Hello Jose,
I love the mood here. Lovely vista enhanced by the mist. Well presented. Best wishes. Danilo
