Travel Photo Friday: Burma Balloons

Today's photo is a real stunner. It comes from Eric Wessman, and here is the story behind the photo...

The photo is called Balloons Over Bagan 3, and was taken in Bagan, Burma (Myanmar). We awoke and left the hotel in total darkness at 6am, and drover to Nyein Gon Paya. I had calculated that from that vantage point I would have views of many other temples with the run rising behind them. I was not disappointed. There was some fog or haze to add atmosphere. I got some excellent photos and did some panoramas as well. It really was an amazing view with stupas all around and receding into the distance. When the balloons flew in, it really added to that other-worldly feeling. 

Eric, it's absolutely stunning! If you want to see more of Eric's work, you can visit his blog: www.ericwessman.com/blog
