Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week POTW goes to @frogdaily again!
Apparently, he is great at this type of vacation photography. This shot was perfect in composition and lighting, and I loved the unusual mix of colors in the background and in the subject. The reflective surface at the bottom makes the scene even stronger.
Congrats, @frogdaily.
