Our Leica Akademie trip to Myanmar was a whole heap of fun; it’s a terrific country for photography being both colourful and very friendly. We timed our trip for the Full Moon in November and had the privilege of attending the Full Moon Festival at Shwezigon Pagoda in Bagan where thousands of monks from the surrounding regions gather in one place.

One a personal note, I was able to reveal the new Leica SL2 for the first time as it was officially announced the day we left on the trip. Many of the photos in the gallery below were taken on this camera and you can read my ‘first look’ review here.

Cheers, Nick Rains.
