About the Image(s)

I visited Mount Popa during the rainy season on 6/20/2019. I climbed up a volcanic plug situated in the Southwest of Mount Popa and took this picture.

Love this mountain landscape. what I think that makes it especially interesting is the multi colored roofs of many home and buildings. The clouds and shadows also make it very dramatic. The wikipedia link was also very interesting. How do you get to the top of the volcanic plug and are you allowed into the monestary?   Posted: 10/04/2021 18:03:02

Thanks for your interest. There is a pagoda and monastery on the top of Poppa volcanic plug. We climbed up the stairs to the top. Yes, everybody can visit there freely. Please visit the link   Posted: 10/04/2021 21:25:13

Thank you so much for the education about this site. I did follow your link and loved what I saw and read.Those blue rooftops in your image help create interest in the entire frame.   Posted: 10/10/2021 18:46:19

Love the perspective. The buildings give a sense of size and distance that you wouldn't get otherwise. All of the colors are so vibrant. Kudos to you for making it to the top also.   Posted: 10/11/2021 14:08:59

This is a lovely picture. Glad you got to the top. My only thought is that the colors are almost TOO vibrant. I might have toned them down a bit.   Posted: 10/14/2021 10:47:29
