Another image from a wonderful sunrise at the temples of Bagan, Burma.
The plain of Bagan has around 2000 temples scattered over a few square kilometers, and in the morning, mist rolls access the plain and the neighboring River Ayerwaddy, making each temple appear like an individual island in the fog.
It really is a remarkable scene.
The majority of the temples were built between the 11th and 13th century, and according to various sources, at Bagan's peak there were around 10 000 temples, stupas and monasteries built in the 100 square kilometer area. Doing the basic math, that's basically starting a new temple every 9 days for a period of 250 years, which is a lot of building!
Numbers aside though, our first morning watching the sunrise across Bagan was a truly unforgettable experience, it's easily one of the most amazing places on the planet.
woah, GREAT !!
Great picture from an amazing place!
your latest pics are timeless
Fantastic photo, so great atmosphere
Balistic Shot !!!!
What a beauty
It's really low res.... You may want to replace the file with a better quality one.
Nope, it was my fault. The previous things I'd saved in PS was at 4 Quality, and when I resized/saved this (it's all on an automated PS action) for some reason it saved it again at 4, instead of the 12.
Thanks for flagging that up, I've reuploaded a better quality image now
Hmm, you're right but I don't know what's going on with that. I've used the same method that I've used to resize/sharpen my jpegs for web upload for the last 6 years or so. The resized file looks fine on my screen, and then on DA it looks crappy. Not sure if they've changed their compression algorithms or something. :-/
do you have a higher quality image?
Sorry, I'd saved the file at too low a quality after resizing in PS and wasn't really paying attention. I've reuploaded a better quality file now.
ooooh! Fantastic capture. Mystical, magical. I love it!
Such lovely atmosphere and colours, it looks so much like a painting.
killer shot my friend!
just beautiful Andy.
A beaufiful sureal scene.
