Last of the Afternoon Sun
Photographer: Walter Diehl
Location: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
We arrived on Isla Santiago late in the afternoon, the sun already low on the horizon. Marine iguanas had arranged themselves in ranks facing the declining sun to absorb the day’s last heat. The sun’s warm hues, saturating the iguanas’ naturally earth-toned skin, produced exquisite copper-colored creatures.
