Sunset on the Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon (Myanmar)

Sunset at the Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon (Myanmar). Several thousands of
people assemble every evening around the Shwedagon pagoda to
to present thier respects to the Buddha. The Shwedagon pagoda is a place of life
where the Burmese meet in family to discuss, to ask, to eat, to go for a walk.....
Colors are splendid in the evening. I recommend to arrive around 4.30 PM
to take advantage of the light and don't leave as soon as the sunset is finish..
Wait at least for one half-hour, and you will the colors constantly changing.
Take your time, you are on vacation!
