Behind the Scene Winner • Gary Fua
Anacapa Island, Channel Islands NP, USA • Canon 7D, Canon 17-40mm f/4L, f/16, 15sec, ISO 100

Coined as the 'Galapagos of the US', Anacapa Island of the Channel Islands National Park is a pristine and paradise-like place. Situated off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, a 2-hour boat ride will take you to this uninhabited paradise.

On an early spring time, hoping to witness the bloom of wildflowers in the area, my family together with two friends decided to do a backpacking trip. We stayed for the night and explored the island all to ourselves. Sounds of crashing waves and high-pitch tone of nesting seagulls reverberated around and refreshed our inner souls.

The next morning we leisurely walked from our campsite to Inspiration Point. There, we waited as the sun hit the craggy coast with a soft warm embrace in gentle golden caress. The far-off fog lifted and displayed its pastel colors creating a symphony.

We savored the moment right before our eyes. The unrivalled beauty we witnessed touched our souls and painted a beautiful memory in our hearts.
