Photographer's Note

Pagodas appear as the early morning mist dissolves in the ancient ruins of Pagan, Burma, the land known as “The golden Land” or “The Land of Pagodas" Between the 11th and 13th century more than 10,000 Buddhist temples and pagodas were constructed in what was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan. Over 2,200 still survive. This photograph was taken from the best vantage point from the top of 9th century Shwesandaw Pagoda.

Setting: 70mm, 1/150sec, F10, ISO Raw 200, 0656hrs

I have uploaded these additional pictures just to answer what Gert 'holmertz' commented:

1) Those on the carts were village peasants and not the ugly snap-snap guided tourist photographers - who would normally arrive at this location in bus load after their breakfast when the sun was already high up and became so intense! They missed the subtle lighting conditions that we the 'avid photographers' would always searching for....

2) Ten years ago during the army junta, their hand phones were of use as what I had experienced then


Both pictures were taken at 0659 using 300mm, 1/1000, F5.6 - They speak for themselves, and Gert hope this statement of facts clarifies.

Picture1: first two carts from the convoy
Picture2: the third and last.
