A rushing wave collides with one of La Digue's granite boulders as a near-full moon climbs into a sunset sky

This beach is on the 'other' side of La Digue and getting to it is quite an exhausting little trip. It's not that its that far, but the heat and humidity makes any physical exhaustion seem 5 times worse than it actually is. The skies weren't looking great when I went, but I knew the full moon would be climbing into the sky shortly after sunset and I was hoping for some moody blue hour shots. Most of the sunset was completely dull when the color suddenly just broke through and at the very same time the moon appeared behind high clouds. I haven't had as much of a rush as this light gave me since last year in Namibia, so for me this image embodies the excitement of my first trip beyond the shores of Africa.
