    Some photos from my recent trip to Myanmar. Travelling through this country was a wonderful experience, beautiful people and scenery all the way.
    I travelled with my wife and daughter (9) so it wasn't always easy to fit in as much time for photography as I would have liked. Well that isn't entirely true, I always carried my camera bag with me, but time spent shooting when the light was right always seemed difficult to organise.
    For this trip I only bought my micro 4/3 gear:
    Panasonic G5 camera
    Olympus EP3 + VF2 viewfinder (used as a backup camera if needed)
    Nokton 25mm lens
    Panasonic 12-35mm
    Panasonic 35-100mm
    The G5 and lenses all fitted inside a Crumpler 3 million dollar home bag. Incredibly light and easy to carry, I couldn't have wished for a nicer system to use.
    Myanmar is a wonderful country and I would encourage you to visit, we organised our own trip, it wasn't too difficult and everything seemed to fall into place when we arrived.

    Great set. I was there myself last December and Bagan I believe to be one of the few unspoilt wonders of the world.

    Going back in November to explore the Mergui Peninsular - 800 unspoilt islands off the coast.

    Some very nice images. The one showing fields and temples is especially pleasing.

    What a lovely set of images that really give a flavour of the people and the country, my two favourites are the monk asleep in the train and horse and trap going across the field.

    Myanmar is definitely "on my list" to visit. Nice selection of images. I also like the b&w of the horse and buggy the best.
