Photography: Landscapes of Bagan

Last month we were in Bagan, a dusty plain in Myanmar, where there are over 2,000 temples and pagodas, some 900 years old.

It really is a stunning and beautiful place so it was no surprise to me that this week it was declared a UNESCO world heritage site.

We got caught in a storm one evening in Bagan and I took these photos from a high-up tower before and during the storm.

The second one was taken through a window getting spattered by heavy and loud raindrops. I think it’s turned out like one of those 17th century landscape oil paintings.
