Myanmar (Burma) is a very special country, rich in history with a sublime natural beauty. The peaceful and deeply spiritual nature of the Bamar majority permeates everyday life. Their Buddhist beliefs have helped them cope with a range of difficulties over the years, including the devastation caused by Cyclone Nargis that ravaged the country on 2 and 3 May 2009.

This image was made in Bagan, the country’s most glorious and well-known ancient capital. It’s a wondrous place for exploration and offers photographers a wealth of subject matter including architecture and religious iconography.

The original 35mm color transparency was made with the aid of side lighting, to emphasize the shape and texture present within the statue. The scanned transparency processed in Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

In all of my travels Myanmar ranks up there with my best. I hope to return to soon.
