In the midday heat in Evia, Greece, I scaled up this cliff in flip-flops and a heavy camera bag. I felt like the biggest jerk on the planet. Stumbling over the jagged rocks, I reached the crest and sat down to enjoy the view. I looked over Kokkinias Beach where my mates were chilling out enjoying cold beers and saw this guy in a kayak paddling out for his daily workout. “What a lucky bastard,” I thought.

I snapped this shot with my Nikon D700 and the nikon wide angle 16-35mm lens and a circular polariser. I gingerly descended the rock face to join my friends — luckily, in one piece.
