Enjoying a cup of tea at sunset

The day I captured this shot we were visiting my grandmother for the holidays. She lives in Sapanca, one of the greenest and natural towns in Turkey, where you can find all colors of nature; blue from lakes and creeks, green from mountains, purple from fig trees. We heard about an observation terrace with a stunning sight of Sapanca Lake. At the time we arrived there it was sunset, so I wanted to capture that combination of beauty; the setting sun above the lake and my grandmother enjoying her cup of tea.
