This is probably the most photographed pagoda/temple in Burma - the Shwedagon Temple in Yangon (Rangoon). We visited this on our first night and it was raining!! As with all temples we had to remove shoes and socks and the marble floor was as a little slippy to the least. Fortunately our visit coincided with the visit of the Vietnamese President and they'd rolled out the red carpet for him. It came in very useful for everyone else as well (v2)

v1 and v2 are shrines around the outside of the temple. v3 and v4 are the main stupa taken after dark.

All hand held as I'd left the tripod behind on the assumption (false) we wouldn't be allowed to use them in the temple complex.

A little bit of info from Wiki! - The base or plinth of the stupa is made of bricks covered with gold plates. Above the base are terraces that only monks and men can access. Next is the bell-shaped part of the stupa. Above that is the turban, then the inverted alms bowl, inverted and upright lotus petals, the banana bud and then the crown. The crown or umbrella is tipped with 5,448 diamonds and 2,317 rubies. The very top, the diamond bud is tipped with a 76 carat (15 g) diamond. The gold seen on the stupa is made of genuine gold plates, covering the brick structure and attached by traditional rivets. Myanmar people all over the country, as well as monarchs in its history, have donated gold to the pagoda to maintain it. The practice continues to this day after being started in the 15th century by the Mon Queen Shin Sawbu, who gave her weight in gold.

Have to agree with Ann's {pluckyfilly} comments here, Dave; your experience of London riverside views in low light must have stood you in good stead when it came to these low light/night shots of this beautiful temple complex.
And I also agree that they are excellent for hand held shots.

I encountered the Schwedagon Pagoda in junior school lessons, circa 1960, though what the context was I have long forgotten - Geography, RE, History??? Probably my teacher had been on the road to Mandalay in WWII.

Extremely impressive photography, Dave.

An intriguing mix of ancient culture and modern brashness. V4 stands out for the reflections in the wet paving.
I'm imagining this place before the advent of electric lighting, with only candles. I think it must have been magical.

Great set, Dave. Number 4 is a cracker too. You have a very steady hand and the quality is still there even at ISO 1000!

fantastic series!
love the wet version best.
must say that you have even worse tourist problems there than I had here... had to wait for a whole busload of Iraqis today before I could take a waterfall.
