Myanmar Sunrise

Our second stop on our Myanmar trip was to the ancient city of Bagan.

Bagan is a city of temples that were built between the 9th to 13th centuries.

Over 10,000 temples were built with over 2200 remaining today that can be seen in every direction that you look.

Because of injuries, there are now only a few temples that you can climb to photograph sunrise and sunset.

On our last morning in Bagan we chose to climb one of the temples and shoot the sunrise.

Many people who know me well know that I am not a morning person and as a photographer I prefer to catch a good sunset over sunrise most days, but Bagan was different.

After our first sunrise shoot I was hooked and was even willing to make a steep climb up tall temple steps with cameras and tripod strapped to my back to get the shot.

Almost every morning at sunrise balloons take off and allow tourists to see and photograph the sunrise while flying high over the temples.

Some of the most famous photos of Myanmar landscapes are of these balloons floating over Bagan temples in the morning light.

We were very lucky on our trip to have beautiful sunsets every day in Bagan and I found these sunrises to be some of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen.

This is a case when the pictures simply don’t do it justice.
