Love in the Amazon

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Laura Grier

Recently in the Peruvian Amazon, I was able to see the gigantic lillypads that span almost 7 feet across. While there I saw a couple kissing and realized that their shadow was projected on the vibrant Lillypads, so I captured the image with their shadow, which I felt was more interesting than without. It give you some sense of the sheer size of these lillypads.

Location: Amazon River-Iquitos, Peru
