A magic moment at Inle Lake

If you have been following us for a while, you probably know this photo from our website and social media platforms. It was taken when we visited Inle Lake during one of our photo workshop with Steve McCurry.

Inle Lake is located in the Shan Hills of Myanmar/Burma and in the morning there are freezing cold. By making a bonfire, the fishermen and his son are able to make themselves some tea to warm up.

I had the great pleasure to spend an amazing (and cold) morning together with a handful of the local fishermen. It was a moment and experience to remember.
