GEORGIA DARLOW, UK “This was shot in Bagan, Myanmar, during a trip last year. I was lucky enough to have the most fantastic guide who knew lots of off-the-beaten-track locations, including this ancient temple that we had to persuade ‘the Keyholder’ to let us access. So with key in hand and an obliging young monk from a nearby monastery as the subject, I was able to capture this shot. It was a truly magical location and shoot that is by far the most enjoyable I’ve been fortunate enough to experience so far.” Kit Canon 5D Mk III with EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens Exposure 1/60 sec at f/5.6, ISO 3,200 SEND US YOUR SHOTS Your photograph could appear here!
