A monk walks along the edge of the stupa at as the day's last light illuminates the golden Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.
On our first evening in Burma, we went over to Shwedagon and found it full of thousands of local people come to pray, burn incense and just soak up the atmosphere in Burma's most religious location. Legand has it that Shwedagon Pagoda has existed in one form or another for 2600 years, and it's impossible to go there and not be impressed by the sheer size and of the 100 meter high gold covered stupa.
My favorite photograph though doesn't show the pagoda in all it's glory, it's this detail that captures a brief moment as the monk walked along the edge of the stupa just before sunset. It pretty much defines religion in Burma; golden temples and the red of the monk's robes.
