    This image was taken on the beach of Sakoneta near Deba, Guipuzcoa province in Spain. At dusk I went with my camera and my tripod to make a series of photographs to capture the essence of such a spectacular place. A pink sky was perfect to capture the beauty of the stones that sink into the horizon. The "Crocodile Back" is an old legend of the people of Timor who explains the birth of this island.

    Story 1

    These rock formations look like the backs of crocodiles! I’ve never seen this before, and it’s lovely that you’ve captured it at sunset so that the black rocks contrast against the pink and orange sky. My only wish would have been to make a long exposure so that the water got a bit more motion and mood to it.
