When I am going on a trip to get a certain shot I usually plan everything quite in detail. What am I going to photograph, were is the sun going to be at what time, will there be disruptive shadows or can I catch the beautiful light during sunrise or sunset?
However, sometimes you just walk around, explore the environment by yourself and get to places that exceed your imagination. This photo is a perfect example of a moment that I have not planned to happen. I didn't know that there was a beautiful scenery with green moss, waterfalls and tiny bright and blue natural bathing tubs everywhere just right behind the corner. Combined with a decent light during sunset and a stranger that unwittingly models as a "person for scale" - perfect to me.
What a great keepsake!
