Well folks, I got up the nerve to enter my first amateur photo contest, and holly cow, I won!

Scroll down to the silhouette of the guy playing the flutes sitting on a sand dune.

Here is the story: My wife is from India, and we decided to take a 3 month honeymoon (7 years delayed) travelling all around India. We were on a camel safari outside of Jaiselmer in the dessert state of Rajastan. We had been riding all day, and the guides were setting up camp and cooking dinner while we strolled around the sand dunes. It was a pretty touristy little place, and a musician strode up to us, sat down, and started playing - obviously looking for tips. I snapped a few shots, and then noticed that the sun was setting. I quickly ran around to his dark side, framed him against the setting sun, and got lucky.

Joe
