14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Dance with the Sunset
I snapped this shot on the beach in Santa Monica, California, at sunset.
I was admiring the beautiful colors in the sky as the sunset when a young boy and his sister caught my attention in the distance. The boy led the way dancing and singing "I love mommy, I love daddy, I love my friends...." at the top of his lungs as his sister slid down the edge of the sandbank behind him. From my perspective, it was almost as if he were engaged in a playful dance with the sunset itself.
Such a pure and beautiful moment, coupled with the immense beauty of the sunset in the background really took my breath away.
