  4. I especially like the siloettes in the second photo, how they frame the photo and point towards the sun. Lovely! Here are my two contributions to Sun. I hope you can visit.

    • Thanks Arindam! You hit on my favorite part of that photo! To me, it looks almost as if she is creating fire with her hands on the shore. :)
