    reflection of hula dancers in waterOne of my favorite photographs from the year resulted from a sunset photo shoot at the beach, and no, the image is not of a setting sun over the ocean. (Although there is one of those, too.) No, I’m thinking of the picture that I took when I turned my back on the sun.
