Photographer's Note

A picture of a tropical flower on a black sand beach taken right where it had fallen from the tree above.


The name of this place is Pantai Pasir Hitam (beach of black sand) and is just a small beach. The black sand is unusual and I believe this is the only beach that has it on the island. Apparently it's still a mystery as to exactly where the black minerals are coming from. We were here at sunset and it was a magical moment.
