If you visit Inle Lake, on your way from the airport at Heho to the village of Nyaung Shwe, you will pass a monastery.
Shwe Yan Pyay monastery, a small little unnoticeable monastery.
This 19th century monastery built entirely of teak, painted red, is a place for young novice monks and their teachers.
Its a place where they practice and learn. This place has incredible lighting inside.
The young novice monks, cloaked in reds and orange robes is a great subject for photographers..
Sadly the time that we visited was during noon and the lighting was so harsh.
But it turns out well in B&W..
