This morning in Burma we had a great dawn experience. We stayed in a beautiful lodge with a classic view of Little Mt. Popa, a volcanic column upon which a dramatic monastery was constructed. Before the sun came up, the illuminated Buddhist monastery stood out nicely against the surrounding landscape. I used a 100-400mm to capture this composition right from the terrace of the hotel. Because I used a 2-second exposure, I set the camera for a 2-second self-timer delay to eliminate any vibration from the camera. Depth of field was not an issue here due to the distance, so I used a lens aperture of f/5 and an ISO of 160.
