The Mystical Fishermen of Inle (Inle Lake, Myanmar 2013)

I am saddened by the news of ethnic/religious unrest in eastern Myanmar in the past several months. I have very fond memories of my expedition there with National Geographic, where I explored its enchanting secrets. I captured this on Inle Lake, a place where sky and water meet and where the fishermen perform over-the-water ballet with conical baskets and oars for props—all while balanced on the bows of their boats. It was an absolutely enthralling experience. I truly hope to return to this remarkable land soon!
