Photographed from a balloon, the 8000-plus pagodas in Bagan, Burma take on a dreamy quality in the dry season when dust, heat and haze create a sepia-toned image.
A visual treat for photographers, Bagan offers subject material around every curve of the path one takes. Ancient pagodas dot the landscape. Virtually everywhere one looks, there are more pagodas, many of them still in use by worshipping Buddhists.
