The last blog post I showed you some of the photographs which I took with the Sony RX100M3 in Myanmar.
Yes of course I had my Fuji gear with me which consisted of the Fuji X-T1, the XF 16-55 2.8 and the XF 23 1.4 which by know I have sold as I noticed that I did not use it much. Sort of 30 shots out of 3000!
The Fujinon XF 16-55 2.8 is such an awesome lens that I did not need any other.
My X-T1, which by now I have sold and replaced with the X-Pro2, performed like a charm! Not once did it let me down. The Battery life was more than enough. On every day I easily managed with one battery. Of course I had one spare in my pocket all the time, but never needed to change it. On this trip the Fuji X-T1 was set up to shoot raw only as I wanted the best image quality I could get and as we get an in camera raw converter with every X camera we buy I could have easily processed the files in the camera as well. I though choose to use Lightroom 6 to do the processing
The round trip stared in Yangon where I managed to do a little bit of people photography. It was such an amazing experience to shoot the always smiling people of Myanmar. Whenever I smiled at a complete stranger I always and I really mean always got a smile back!
Anyway, these are some of the street shots I took in the city of Yangon.
Some snapshots from a local market
Next stop was Bagan. There are so many Pagodas in Bagan that I just could not count them all. My wife and I had booked Balloons over Bagan experience and it was so worth the money. We also had a ride in a horse carriage.
Leaving from Bagan for a one and a half hour bus ride it went all the way to Mt. Popa. Just see the pictures and let them speak for themselves.
From Bagan we took a quick air travel to Mandalay which is where I took some of the best shots on the whole trip.
After the two nights in Mandalay we took a 9 hour bus ride all the way to Pindaya. Man that was a bumpy ride, but an interesting one.
From there on it went to Kalaw. We took a 3 hour hike through the mountains of Kalaw and had a great time.
After that it went to the highlight of the round trip through Myanmar. The bus took us to the Inle Lake which is one of the landmarks in this wonderful country.
I don´t want to write too much about it, just take a look at the pictures and enjoy the trip with me. If you should have any questions, remarks or comments just drop a line or send an email. I will be sure to get back to you.
I hope you enjoyed taking a look at the pictures I took on this round trip through Myanmar
Until then have a great time
