I spent last week travelling around Myanmar (Burma). It was a fantastic trip albeit far too short! This is a time of rapid change in Burma as decades of repression begin to make way for a freer society. There is still some way to go, but everyone I talked to was very optimistic about the future outlook.

This is a photo of a fruit bat flying towards an ancient pagoda in Sittwe. The entire country bristles with beautiful pagodas, stupas and temples… attempting to photograph as many of them as possible certainly kept me busy!
