Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Sunrise and Temple” by Eduardo Seastres

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day is a gorgeous sunrise shot of an ancient temple in Myanmar by Eduardo Seastres. The delicate color and subtle, poetic tone to the image is exceptional.

“Sunrise and Temples in Bagan, Myanmar seem to overwhelm the landscape,” Seastres writes. “Bagan is an ancient city that was the capital of the prosperous Bagan empire that controlled most of present day Burma. At the height of empire’s power between the 11th and 13th century more than 10,000 temples and pagodas were built. Today, about 2,200 monuments remain in various states of repair, which makes Bagan one of the most dense concentrations of temples and pagodas in the world.”
