Story behind the winning shot:
"We came at the peak of the mountain just before sunset. The light was awesome, the sun was shining through the peaks of mountains, causing long shadows and lift mist in the valley. It was a very pleasant and exciting nature adventure." - Sandi
"This is a rather unique shot of a sunset. The scene shows the particular time of the evening when the rays from the sun have started to glow with a subtle luminescence in the foreground. It's interesting to note how the determined rays are finding their way between the natural pattern of the mountains to reflect on the grass. The photographer also presents an exhilirating and adventerous story within the scene by showing a cyclist on the hill." - Rumaisa
