Pic(k) of the week 50: Oxen plowing in Mandalay (Myanmar)
When I blogged part 2 of my travels through Myanmar earlier this week, I left one image out of the blogpost on purpose...
On of my favourite images of the few days we photographed in the Mandalay region, is the one below of a farmer plowing a field with an oxen team. I particularly like how the early morning sun falls on his face, while two ladies are patiently waiting on his side. To me it completely reflects the peaceful and relaxed feeling I had while making the image!
