20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Early morning boat on Lake Inle, Myanmar

In dawn's early light, the fog was just beginning to lift from the mountains surrounding Lake Inle, Myanmar. I was on a boat on a personal tour offered by our hotel on the morning of a Buddhist festival. I don't think boat had nothing to do with the festival, but was simply men out fishing or tending the gardens they grow on top of this shallow lake.
