Gin Oya Sunset — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sunset to Sunrise

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sunset to Sunrise (including any nighttime photography).

As the timely finale to a leisurely boat ride on the Gin Oya river, our Sri Lankan boatman brought us out to the Indian Ocean to view a remarkable sunset over crashing waves.

Palm Leaves in the Gin Oya — Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves or Trees

This is our entry in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves or Trees.

These gorgeous palm leaves were reflected in the Gin Oya (a river in Sri Lanka) as we floated in our small boat just before sunset, watching for birds, monitors, and other creatures in the water, river banks, and sky above.  Sometimes beauty is what you see when you are looking for something else.
