Rebekah is clearly exasperated with her mother trying to get her to smile and stop squinting as I snap a photo.
See the Jon-man's shadow audience?
Can you spot his shadow?
He's definitely at that age where genuine smiles for photos are a rare thing...
... but persistence finally paid off.
Is it possible to be head over heels with your own kid?
I now know what if feels like to be "stalked."
Thankfully, these creatures weren't too wild.
Jon-man wanted his photo taken, flying in front of the sunset.
Watching the sunset is always one of my favorite parts of a trip out to the dunes.
There really is nothing else like an African sunset.
Tori tried her hand at capturing these "tree portraits."
She's curious to know which one you prefer... and why, of course!
I loved all of the photos I've included - but for some reason, this is a particular favorite.
My eyes almost hurt when I look at the brightness of the sun in this photo!
Even just laying on your back and
watching the cloud formations and colors was phenomenal.
Another fave -
Look at those silhouettes against the vivid colors of the sky just after the sun had set!
