On top of the Golden Rock, a small pagoda has been built. It is said that it is a strand of Buddha’s hair enshrined in it which miraculously prevents the rock from tumbling down the hill. More on the blog: http://bit.ly/1kFzUgp

Intha Fishermen are known for their technique of rowing wrapping one of the legs around the oar to relieve and free arms for fishing. Photographing from a stable position instead of a boat let us create rare dusk images with lanterns. More on the blog: bit.ly/1nds3Gx

Your photographs of Inle and Inthas show your love for the region and everyone who sees these pictures must want to see them with their own eyes.Thank you for sharing them for all to see.

This image was made with the same group of four Intha fishermen of Lake Inle, Myanmar as the previous posted image. However, I've tried to make it look more "natural", with less alignment and more action. Which one do you prefer ?

To capture from a moving boat this curious fence in the middle of Lake Inle with the pastel colors of dawn, I cranked up ISO.

Kyaiktiyo, the Golden Rock, is a large granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by devotees. The gravity-defying boulder lies on an inclined rock slab with a small area of contact, overhanging for half its length.

With hundreds of small stupas in a various stages of ruin, the Indein Pagoda complex is an amazing and haunting site. I hiked to a nearby hill so that I could use a telephoto to compress the perspective, which conveys the density of the stupas. More on the blog: bit.ly/1nds3Gx

Despite the great beauty of Lake Inle, what makes it special is that it is home to a unique culture, symbolized here by this shrine set in the middle of the lake.

Morning light and reflection, alignment, gesture, is this image of the  Intha fishermen of Lake Inle, Myanmar too "perfect" ?

Story
Tagline
full-time travel & nature photographer. 1st to shoot all 59 US National Parks
Introduction
I celebrate the splendor and variety of the natural and human heritage through my photography.  Favoring clarity and truthfulness, I seek to convey the emotions and the sense of connection that I experienced in some of the most beautiful corners of the earth, with the hope that aesthetic appreciation will lift our soul and eventually lead to awareness and respect for our planet and its inhabitants.

I am known for being the first to  photograph each of the 59 US National Parks and also for my website http://www.terragalleria.com with more than 30,000 images from around the world  - one of the most visited of all individual photographer's websites (~ 500,000 monthly visits). Print sales and image licensing from that website are the sole source of income for our family. 

My photographs have been published in more than 30 countries, in every possible media, and in two large photo books under my name: "Beautiful North America" (2007) and "Spectacular Yosemite" (2011). They have been the subject of museum and gallery solo exhibits on both US coasts. I have been profiled in more than a dozen press articles (eg, Boston Globe, National Geographic Explorer, Parks Magazine, Outdoor Photographer), and featured as a character in Ken Burn's film "The National Parks, America's Best Idea" (2009).
