Spires Above the Plain

Spires Above the Plain

Shot from one of the seven pagodas that people are still allowed to climb, I captured this image just after the sun had dropped below the hills in the distance. The sky was still had a warm and soft orange glow, while the trees and grass were turning from a vibrant lush green to a cooler hue.

From atop any Bagan pagoda or stupa the view is simply stunning. No matter which direction you turn or look, hundreds of ancient architectural wonders meet your eyes. You can’t escape the sight of spires rising above the plain. And, why would you want to escape such an incredible view; one that is found only here in Bagan, along the banks of the Irrawaddy River.
