While on a recent vacation to Costa Rica my wife and I took an evening stroll along a quiet stretch of Playa Grande beach. After sunset the sky became beautifully multihued and reflected off the wet sand. I took this shot as a lone surfer, seemingly oblivious to the fantastic views, heads home.

Hampi, India

Taken in Hampi, India. I was on a climbing trip on all the granite boulders scattered in this area, when Johan jumped between the boulder he had just climbed and the one you get down from. I took the shot at just the right time.
