    that place looks unreal - the first shot when you gradually go up to reveal all the temples poking out the tree tops......

    Thanks everyone. That video was so fun to make and I really got lucky on that backward ascending opening clip. I had no idea the pagodas and temples were going to emerge like that when I made the flight.

    Also, at the very beginning of that sequence, the top of the golden paya has a golden umbrella-shaped crown with jewels flashing as the drone is backing away. Beautiful. Sometimes I get lucky.

    On a side note: the top of Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon has a 76 carat diamond. It would take a pair of 77 carat nuts to fly it, though.
