Photographer's Note

It seems like nothing is disturbing this peaceful scene and nothing was.

I was gliding along the little side channels of Inle Lake in a canoe and except for the soft sound as the canoe caresses the water surface, nothing was interrupting this moment of perfect silence.

The sun was slowly disappearing behind the hills surrounding Inle Lake and I was mesmerized by the magical light before dusk. I wanted to capture the stillness of that very moment as well as the deafening silence and transmit a fraction of its pure beauty so I could carry it with me, for moments surrendered to stress.

I wish I could return once every day to this very spot, contemplating the beautifully patterned house by the lake and enjoy the moment when all goes quiet.
