18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Two women looking for sea resources before sunset at Tanjung Lesung beach, Indonesia.

I was spending the afternoon photographing the bagan (floating fishing huts) in the Sunda Strait in Indonesia. While sitting on the Tanjung Lesung beach and watching them with Mt. Krakatoa in the background, these two women appeared in the frame from nowhere. They were looking for shells and crabs, and spent an entire hour over there. The evening was drawing close with the dragonflies circling over. The wind was cool and the whole atmosphere was simply great.
