Somehow, this is my first post of an incredible place I've visited in Myanmar: Kakku - a complex made of hundreds of stuppas, as the ones in the photo.Unfortunately, the weather was not that good and some minutes later it started raining - it was still the monsoon.
Situated in the mountains, a few kilometres far from Taunggyi, in the Shan State, Kakku was recently open to Tourism and it soon became an important attraction in the region.It's a very ancient religious site, also visited by the Pa-O people, whose villages are situated in the surroundings. This area is under administration of the Special Region 6. It's a Pa-O territory and we needed a Pa-O guide to get there.

My travel plans are fixed soon.I have two options and I`m waiting for a message from Columbus travel in Yangon.
One option includes Inle lake and then of course I`ll visit Kakku.
It`s a great shot of these stupas.Excellent quality and great contrast with the sky.

aunque un poco tarde, te felicito por estos 6 años compartiendo tu afición y tus fotos con nosotros.
Este conjunto tan numeroso de estupas, que nos ofreces en un encuadre muy bien escogido para que nada nos distraiga, tiene un fuerte grafismo y una geometría impresionante, debido a la repetición de lkos elementos.
Sin dudas es un lugar increíble, que podemos conocer gracias a tu buen trabajo, en el auténtico espíritu de TE.

Excellent framing for the pressentation of this curious, impressive nad beautiful architectur. The architectur arise too very well in the tender blue of the sky. Very graphic composition.

Waow, what a stunning picture. Incredible and magnificent architecture very well captured, excellent framing giving a strong graphical effect. I like how we can see all the details and the constrast with the sky. In Feburary we will go to Myanmar for 2 weeks ans when I see such picture I'm already impatient.

I have never seen anything like this before. I still can’t get over your colourful images of the festival. And now you give me this. It seems to me that you have taken only a portion of a wide spread area full of stuppas. They seem to be in great state of preservation. The details involved in the stuppas are well seen and well captured. It is an amazing site. The cloud formation above for me is great. If the sky were simply blue without the clouds, the very fragile balance, which exists in your image, would not have been the same. You have come back with a great image. Thank you Ana.
With my very best wishes,
Have a great week ahead!!

Fabulous turrets collected, with fine contrast to blue sky. They multi similar, but yet placed in a unique arrey - not symetrically.
Magnificent place well presented.

Excellent light management and colors.Very well done.
patdeph (35748) 2011-09-11 11:09
splendid and spectacular architecture,emphasized by your framing only on the top of the stupas. You were lucky to have a blue sky at the moment when you took the picture,this is still more beautiful.I have to look wgere is exactly this place,as I am going to Myanmar,in february.

A very amazing composition, very nice graphic touch and perfect framing!

A magnificent place and awesome pointing 'arrows' Lighting may not be to your liking but you have done the very best here. This view shows the grandeur of these stupas and the available light traces the shapes really well. The colours and composition are excellent and I like the fact that you have used every available space in your frame, a very creative approach. Good clarity, colors and overall contrast. Wonderful shot and TFS

Ola dear Ana
What a wonderful way to present this wonder of the world. The details and the way you've cropped it are just magical and you could not have asked for a more beautiful sky to cooperate with the rest of the image. Fantastic, parabens.
francio64 (39888) 2011-09-12 14:44
un luogo davvero incredibile e mozzafiato.
Una ripresa fotografica eseguita molto bene e un cielo di sfondo molto bello.
Interessante anche l'effetto grafico ottenuto.
Very well done!
nikkitta (17066) 2011-09-12 16:09
Very creative way to show the stupas
Not sun but great contrast golden against blue and white sky
Informative note and great graphical effect
amaryllis (36881) 2011-09-13 13:41
une superbe photo de cette architecture remarquable, on dirait des aiguilles pointées vers le ciel
le cadrage est excellent
Angshu (56750) 2011-09-15 21:09
Before this I don't think I've seen any picture from this place...seesm quite amazing with the dense conglomeration of stupas, all delicately created against the blue sky. Yes, as we see not very bright light, but the sombreness of the structures is accentuated by the low light!
paninho (2931) 2011-09-23 2:32
Das quatro esta é a minha preferida! Belissimo grafismo provocado pelo recorte destas torres no céu, o qual também ficou muito bonito! Parabéns por este trabalho!
P.S.- na minha ultima fotografia tens um link para o meu novo site, desculpa a publicidade! he!he!

Nunca tinha vista um tão grande aglomerado de relicários budistas.
Bela viagem e que reportagem...

Hi Ana, love this one. Wow it is just a different view, different architecture to see. although there were a lot of pictures from Myanmar on TE, this is the first time i see this place. Well done. Very unique. Sothy
subhendu_bagchi (26089) 2011-10-23 17:54
really an interesting place. It must be a popular tourist spot. The perspective is nice and you presented it nicely despite of bad weather condition. The repeatation of these stupas are really looks superb. A great collection. Tfs.

é a primeir avez que vejo este lugar numa foto, muito bonita esta sucessão de pináculos se repetindo em padrões. muito boa a sua foto, bem feito. TFS
frunchy (1800) 2011-12-08 4:44
i like this one best from all in terms of composition. The format and the height of the stuppas make for a very harmonic composition. Good work, well done, TFS, F.
kiks (12547) 2012-02-18 7:48
Verry intersting this constructions!! I love the effect against the beautiful blue sky. I think i would choose to light a bit up the fg to see better the detail.
