Expat Magazine Photo Competition Travel Category Winner 2017

A Rite of Passage

A Rite of Passage

Absolutely over the moon to have taken out the Expat Magazine Travel Category in the 2017 competition. The travel category is always one of the most challenging as there are so many incredible photographers out there challenging for it. My winning image was a totally by chance opportunity. We were driving out to the archeological valley in Bagan, when we happened by a procession for a Hood Ceremony for novice monks. I jumped out the van and grabbed a few shots of the horses and carts, when to my delight one of the boys father invited me into the monastery were the photo was taken. Moral of the story, be ready for anything when traveling in SEA : )
