I took this photo during a full Moon night at the Huvafen Fushi Resort, North Mal atoll, Kaafu, Maldives. It was so bright that you could have easily read a newspaper that night!
I took this shot in Saint Jean de Luz, a fishing port on the Basque coast and now a famous resort, known for its architecture, sandy bay, the quality of the light and the cuisine.
