Fiji is simply this beautiful.

Sigatoka sand dunes, Fiji.

I was trying to capture the sharp lines and the varying colors of these sand dunes; they are constantly changing, constantly shifting, unearthing historic artifacts and then burying them again.

The yin and the yang.
Back to the sprints. The horse was going so fast that I was surprised it didn’t hurt itself.
The sand dunes cover an ancient settlement – perhaps one of the first in Fiji. It’s often an archaeological site for students. Because the sand dunes are constantly shifting, they often reveal new artifacts – like these pottery shards I found at the base of a dune, which are apparently about 2000 years old. I left them with the museum, and now I get to say that I have made my contribution to the great field of archaeology. Only when posting this did I realize a fly photobombed what might have been my shining moment.
