For a bit of background behind my picture's choice: I chose one of the 10 words celebrated this year in the French-speaking countries. Mine was VIGOUSSE, a Swiss word which means being "vigorous, vivacious, full of life, alert."

And my description for the picture was:

"If I had a title for this picture, I would name it "The light comes out for surfers in Byron Bay". This was taken on Wategos Beach, Byron Bay, New South Wales. We were waiting for the sunset light and al the surfers started to appear, ready for an amazing surf. I saw this girl running on the beach and ready to jump in the water so I also ran the catch the perfect moment with the perfect light. A much needed vigousse attitude to jump in the water with a longboard!"
