Beach Day

Category: Spontaneous Moments

Stumbling along this pristine stretch of beach in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka, we were delighted to see the monks out enjoying a day of surf and sunshine. They were having so much fun frolicking in the waves and photographing each other. Having just ended a civil war, in the area where some of the most intense fighting took place, we could only imagine that this day of sun and fun was long overdue and a special treat for the monks whose bright orange robes juxtapose the deep blue color of the Indian ocean so beautifully.

Location: Trincomalee, Sri Lanka
