Bagan Sunset by AndyMumford Bagan Sunset by AndyMumford
Sunrise is really the best time to photograph Bagan.  There's usually a layer of mist on the plain, there are balloons in the sky, and you can find temple tops that are really quiet to set up and shoot.
I wasn't really intending to photograph sunset from a temple top…we'd been cycling around the plains of Bagan in the heat all day, and as the sun got lower I went into a field to photograph a small temple with the last light of day turning the bricks red.  My wife said she was just going to run up the steps of another, larger temple (Buledi) to watch the sunset.  I took my shots then turned round to see her standing on the very small upper patio of the temple, squashed in with all the other people who'd climbed up there to see the sunset.  I decided I may as well have a walk up the steps to join her and watch the sunset….and of course, as soon as I got there, I couldn't resist taking a couple of frames.  
So this is the view from the top of Buledi temple in Bagan, Burma, as the sun sets in the west.
