Inle Lake region is one of the most magical places in Myanmar, and by applying the ‘Dream Look’ from the app Photoshop Express to a few of the photos I took there, I feel that I have captured the otherworldly feeling we had on our boat trip down the lake…
Wandering down to the lake’s edge past the river as people are getting ready for their day…
The fishermen are out early.
I dream of growing up in houses like these.
Shangri-La at the end of the lake.Hilltribe women waiting at the temple at the top of the hill.
Even our lunch of lake fish looks (and tastes) magical.
On the way home we pass more magical stupas. The day ends but the magic doesn’t.
A cookie vendor, wondering if we might want some dessert.
Even the buoys are replaced with channel markers that couldn’t exist anywhere else but Myanmar.
Note: Photoshop Express is a free app from Adobe with lots of fun options. This ‘Dream Look’ is one of my favourites – it heightens the colours and contrast, and reduces clarity (kind of blurs the edges).
