Inle Lake: Jumping up a step

A girl runs toward a friend along a stilt bridge on the edge of Inle Lake in Myanmar.  The bridge extends a couple of hundred metres into the lake to allow boats to dock year round regardless of high water during the rainy season or the opposite extreme in the summer.  There was a community of a dozen or more stilt houses and floating gardens at the lake end of the bridge so it no doubt serves as the primary link for these children to their school and friends.

These two girls were laughing while running back and forth across the bridge.   I was there for the sunset but it was fun to have the youthful energy spilling all over.  I like the blue hues in this image contrasted primarily by the clothing of the girl who is jumping up the step.
