I remember the shot of Leo. This one is too excellent with the fog which give a particulary athmospher. A superb view to a astonishing and mysterious place.
Have a nice Sunday,

faktycznie widok jest cudowny.Znakomite wykonanie.Ten widok na pewno wynagrodzil tobie trudy podrozy oraz to,ze musialas rano wstac,zeby zrobic tak piekne zdjecie.Poranna mgla nadaje calosci unikalnej,troche "mistycznej" atmosfery.Jeszcze raz gratuluje pieknego zdjecia.

what a lovely story! Good thing to be stuborn! And marvelous TE world to let you discover the earth. You were rewarded by the mist which gives a stunning effect/

It is really like a fairt-tale. Magnificent photo! Beautiful colors and composition. I should also start dreaming to visit there some day...

nice interesting place. well composed, nice photo. I think that this photo should be a bit softer (looks like a bit over sharpened), to bring out mist more stronger.

A beautiful image with a lovely mystical atmosphere. Well composed with the stupa placed just off centre. The brown tones of the stupa make a fine contrast with the surrounding vegetation. A very interesting not about your travels as always.

Now there are two pictures of Mrauk U that will make people dream of visiting it.
I remember the picture of Leo. I have visited Myanmar during a month in 1997 and honestly in that time I had never heard of Mrauk U. I think then it was inaccessible for foreigners.
The picture really looks like a dreamy world and it was certainly worth the effort to go there and to get up very early.
Attractive composition with the different horizontal layers.
Best regards, Paul

this is so beautiful, love the light and colours here that are so attractive and appealing. The mist adds that air of mystery and magic. Stunning!
Enjoy a peaceful Sunday - regards Brian.

Nie ulega watpliwo¶ci ¿e jest to piekne ujecie.
Fantastycznie uchwycony bardzo ulotny klimat miejsca,
kolory i kompozycja.
Mam wra¿enie ¿e jest to wycinek z jakiego¶ szerszego kadru bo zdjecie straci³o na jako¶ci, a ISO 800 tak¿e
jest ju¿ zauwa¿alne. Nie przeszkadza mi to bo zdjêcie jest niezwyk³e i zapada w umyslach.

Ciao cara Signora IF
What a magical photo of this magical place. It is so satisfying to read your Note, I am so happy that you achieved your dream to photograph this enchanting place. Wonderful colours, the mist is so beautifully suggestive. A real work of art, congratulations, you must be very proud of this.

Good Morning Malgorzata,
I really enjoyed reading your notes and felt the sense of fulfilment that you had experienced. What a wonderful fairy story! From your photograph,
all the troubles were worthwhile!
The shot tells it all: enignatic, romantic, mysterious, a place that most of us will only experience via your incredible shot.
My warm regards,

w ostatnim komentarzu do mojego zdjecia napisalas "Klasyczne dośc ujęcie, ale..."
No to pomyslalem zajrze do galerii emki zeby zobaczyc jakie to one nieklasyczne fotografie pokazuje.
A tu masz: jak sama piszesz zdjecie wypisz wymaluj jak z gelerii leo. Pamietam jak opowiadalas mi ze lubisz sprawdzac TE co juz jest z danego miejsca zeby wkleic cos zupelnie nowego, a tu masz! Strasznie sie na Tobie zawiodlem :)
No ale ja akurat jestem z tych ktorzy rozumieja potrzebe dzielenia sie klasycznymi widokami ;)
Miejsce rzeczywiscie wspaniale, Doskonaly POV, super mgla ktora zaslania ale nie przeszkadza widziec. Bradzo urokliwy nastroj.
Gratulacje i milej niedzieli,

The picture look wonderful and the view is great.Very interesting effect obtained with the fog in back of the temple.

una immagine dal fascino particolare con una bella tonalità e colorazione.
Tanto verde con la nebbia che avvolge la scena.

I do agree that travelling internally in Burma is not as easy as in most south east Asia countries. The flights are rare, and if there is, only once a day and very early in the mornings, and quite pricey as well.
I love your picture, but feel that it is a little over saturated? Also, with the early morning mist, the picture should be softer, and more dreamlike, as in Leo's picture. Nevertheless - great shot achieved with great pains !!
- danos (107865)
- [2011-12-18 5:14]
fascinating the view of this dreamily place with the light fog to spread among the woody area,with the stupa to dominates on the foreground,completing the breathtaking scene.Excellent presentation.
- BennyV (24517)
- [2011-12-18 5:52]
Somewhat less sharp that Leo's version, but more colour and your shot has an excellent mood to it. Mission accomplished!

Tu as fait un très beau voyage.J'aime beaucoup le point de vue sur ce très beau temple envahi par une nature entêtante et cette belle brume qui semble sortir de la terre et qui adoucit tout autour.
- francio64 (39888)

complimenti per la bella foto che sembra un dipinto.
Bella la capanna in FG che nella miniatura fa pensare ad un tempio thailandese :))

think Leo will like this similiar one too, when being back at the end of the month..
for sure a great place, and worth o get up there on that in the early morning..
have a great week, see you soon, Bernd

- holmertz (68882)
- [2011-12-18 8:01]
Well, I thought I had seen this before...:-)
This is a kind of view that could be photographed an endless number of times, of course. The morning mist among these hills is marvellous and it is very interesting to see the small changes in the vegetation in the six years since Leo's photo. Now we'll just wait and see if you will also receive 606 points. I think that is not possible for anyone any more.
PS thanks for a very interesting note too.

A great picture, nearly as good as your inspiration photo:)) A very special place, that´s for sure. The morning mist covers the green forest and the pagoda is excellently captured. But I don´t think there are enough members left on TE to give you more as many as 600 points now...
- jjcordier (79297)
- [2011-12-18 22:26]
Tu as réussi à retrouver des conditions presque identiques à celles qu'avait eu Leo et réaliser une superbe photo qui a vraiment dû te faire plaisir. C'est aussi ça TE, donner, par une photo, l'envie d'aller découvrir un endroit du monde.

Hi Malgo, I have read and followed your blog on this scene and its fantastic to view it and share your excitement and presence in this country and this particular scene from Leo which inspired your trip. Well a super photo you have captured of Mrauk U. Fantastic colours, mood and management and presentation. Glad you fulfilled your dream. Tfs,Cheers Iain.

un paysage fantastique dans lequel les couleurs très fortes favorisent le look peinture et le relief.
Le rôle de la brume pour séparer les plans est efficace.

I have loved your story very much,and I love your picture.There is not exactly the same light than on the Leo's picture,but this is as wonderful.I can't imagine that there is a better POV,it's so beautiful from here.As you,if 1 day I go there,I will try to find it too.

Ciao cara Malgo,
well back home! :-)
Truly amazing this place, isolated from the world, difficult to reach, but it's certainly worth to visit. I believe that this is one of the most beautiful place in the world, and your wonderful picture confirms it. You have done a photographic masterpiece, BRAVISSIMA!!!
Ciao, buon martedì!

I like the title, Malgo, and the scenery itself, that looks as an expressionist-painting's.
Wonderful colorss in compo. the smoke/fog added
to the ambiance, and the overwhall place on jungle is quite impressive.
Buenas tardes ( no mistake - just felt to say in spanish).
- abmdsudi (68060)
- [2011-12-20 23:59]
The temple on the hill can be perfectly seen, and the surroundings are covered with the mist, letting us concentrate on it. This is a superb dreamy feel picture! Have you made any PP to enhance the image, I feel slightly over saturated to reveal the true colorst The bright brown/orange of the temple stands out against the surrounding so superbly. A very good picture. Well done

Oh Yes...what a place! I dreamt of Leo's picture as wll, wishing I can see the same with my own eyes..I don't have a clue when that dream will become a reality! I consider you a doer & fulfiller of your own dreams...my deep respects!
The early morning mist creates an aura around those stupas which makes these pictures amazing. My dream lives on! Look fwd for more pictures from your trip! And need I mention?...I loved reading your note
Hope you are doing well!
I am sure when Leo returns he will love to see this replica. So you also stayed at versali guest house:) This time next week I will be back there, thanks for the lovely reminder.

You were lucky to visit such an exotic country, as Myanmar, and take such a fantastic picture. I like your photo of this unique place even more than Leo's one. The unusual landscape, wonderful natural and architectural features and special atmosphere of the place are depicted by you perfectly. Excellent job!
Best regards and very merry Christmas to you!

I read your note with a big smile on my face, and was really happy for your dream coming true. In Europe everything goes well with plans, when you have booked things, you do most of the things you planned. But in Far East, i guess things are much different, most of the time depending on your luck, tihngs develop spontaneously. And i congratulae you on your devotion. This is the power of TE, the story is this: How Leo's photo made you dream, and with determination how you realized it.

Naprawde super ujecie tego specificznego miejsca, obraz jak spod pedzla mistrza dawnych czasow. Azja ma to do siebie, ze jest tak mocno inna w klimacie kultury, co za tym idzie sceny z tamyejszych terenow czesto zadziwiaja swoim intrygujacym urokiem zachodniego przybysza.

A brilliant shot and an even better story - sometimes the work we put in to getting a photograph lies unacknowledged behind the 'decisive moment' aspect of taking a photograph - it can seem too quick, too easy. This is a stunning, magical and deeply mystical photograph. great work, Iain.

Good morning Malgo,
This just looks like another world ! Fantastic scenery with the pagoda on a platform, in the middle of the forest ornate with the stripes of morning fog ! How you did well getting up early for this morning photo !
Congratulations for your tenacity on this expedition to Burma.
I have a friend who cycled in south-east Asia for 12 months in 2013-14, and he was so happy to be one of the first foreigners to be able to cross the land frontier from Thailand to Burma.
His journey was pure heaven, because he met a country almost untouched by modern cilisation. He was sorry not to be allowed to stay in people's houses, but he still managed to meet the locals quite a bit and to stay in temples.
