Nat Shrine

Posted by

Although the Burmese are Buddhists they build shrines to land spirits they call Nat. They make daily offerings of food, incense and flowers at the shrines to placate these "guardian" Nat because they displaced them by building their houses, monasteries or by planting rice and other crops on the land .

Wonderful Shot! Has the Pirates of the Caribbean feel...well if the hut was covered. Either way....It is a wonderful shot.

I should've posted a comment before because I really like this shot. The darkness of the foreground and the excellent lighting around the shrine - I like it a lot.

Beautifully shot, brilliant atmosphere - approaching the shrine from the lake - out of the darkness and into the light. Great stuff!
