Fairy Tales Bagan Myanmar Ruins

 

“Fairy Tales” – Bagan, Myanmar – Amnon Eichlberg – Featured Photographer

This landscape looks like a Hollywood set for the next “Indiana Jones” movie.  Everything just looks so interesting.  I have been to several ruins around the world, but nothing that looks like this.   After reading a little about this mystical place please check out Amnon’s extensive portfolio at  www.amnonpic.com.  Prepare to be amazed!

Here is Amnon:

The ruins of Bagan cover an area of 16 square miles (41 km2).  The majority of its buildings were built in the 11th century to 13th century, during the time Bagan was the capital of the First Burmese Empire.   After an earthquake in 1975, there are only 2,217 pagodas left in Bagan, in contrast to more than 5,000 before the disaster.

All of the area was designated like fairy tales country.  This feeling intensifies especially in the early morning and towards sunset when the area is wrapped in mist, fog…

“Zottel is Back”- Alps, Switzerland – John Wilhelm – Featured Photographer

As with many great photographs, John has not only created an emotion with his photo, but also leads the viewer into an imaginary story written in their own mind.

I hope this photo makes you smile.  I certainly did when I opened it.  At first, I thought “what a silly goat chewing on a flower”.  Then I realized this was only the beginning of the destruction.  I assume by now that entire field of daisies has been reduced to goat made fertilizer.  Please follow John below on how he painstakingly created Zottel.

Take it away John :

Hi there everyone.

Wonderful to be here on PhotoBotos with one of my shots. Wow!

The selected photo was very difficult to take. We had to keep track of this very rare and shy animal for months.  We chased it…

When we saw this image by the Burrard-Lucas brothers the Photobotos brothers were blown away.  You don’t get inches away from 10 foot lizards with killer saliva so we had to know how they did it.  These guys as you will see are not only great photographers, but are very clever in how they obtain them.    You can find them at http://www.burrard-lucas.com/

After checking out their Komodo dragon photos, hop over to their Giant Panda Expedition at http://blog.burrard-lucas.com/2011/10/giant-panda-tracking/. The photos are incredible.

“Swirling Tide” – Espasa Beach, Spain – Lujo Semeyes – Featured Photographer

This is one of those “I wish I was there” (IWIWT) photographs.  I can feel the cool water and sand between my toes.  There is a strong breeze blowing and I put on an extra layer, but dare not miss what promises to be an excellent sunset.  After reading Lujo’s account it turns out I am not that far off.  Although maybe the water is a bit cooler than I expected.  Please  visit this and several other “IWIWT” photographs at Lujo’s portfolios  500pix.com/lujo and flickr.com/lujo.    Here are a couple of other great links of his in Spanish asemeyando.es and exodos.es

Here is Lujo:
