Wow! That is awesome! And how peaceful and beautiful! I love the still, perfect reflections on the water! Thanks for sharing the beauty, JM!

That's incredible! I've not seen it before. It should perhaps be the 8th wonder of the world? Terrific photo, too. Did you eat there?

@Lowell: No, I didn't eat there because the restaurant was owned by the government - that bloody military junta - and I refused to give them a dime during the month I spent there. Glady, the Lonely Planet guide had a list of every private business such as hotels, restaurants, shops, transportation companies, etc, etc, and I've only dealt with those. However, I tried to visit this restaurant but a military meeting was taking place there and I was not allowed to go in.

So beautiful, with the reflections on the still water. It appears to be floating on the backs of large ducks.

Have a nice week!

This is beautiful but I think I would have some trepidation in traveling to Myanmar these days.

Such perfect peace and beauty.

I had to come back and look at this photo again. That's such an unusual structure. I agree about the autocrats running the country. What a shame. We never learn a damn thing!

GASP! That is a gorgeous image! It really does hit every note perfectly: color, composition, lighting, mood, romance, story, and I'm sure I'm leaving out a million other reasons to love it. Unforgettable...

I've never seen anything like this before! Amazing and so peaceful looking. Your photo looks like something out of a story book.
