Day's end, Piran, Slovenia. The city lights of the medieval village begin to glow as the sun sets over the Adriatic.

As I stood on the hill, I realized I'd accidentally wandered into someone's yard in an effort to frame up this shot. I certainly try to respect those lines. An elderly guy came out of the house, ambled in my direction. I thought for sure he'd throw me out, sick of tourists trampling his grass. Instead he smiled, stood next to me for a second, admiring the view. "I hope you make beautiful pictures," he said. And then he was gone. And I'll always remember fondly my brief time in this beautiful place.
