Twilight's Lament. West Coast, New Zealand, South Island - 2/14/2012.
My race with the sun, to the next strip of coastline, had just begun and the time was rapidly slipping away. I was watching my GPS unit (a gift from my New Zealand hosts Pauli and Heather, which turned out to be a travelers best friend) and trying to make it to the one stretch of coastline on this remote and lonely road, before sunset or even full twilight. As I reached the small stretch of beach the sun was just kissing the day goodbye.
