“I was sitting in a small bar watching the kids playing soccer in the sunset,” writes Your Shot member Florian Goppold, whose trip through Brazil took him for a few days to Salvador da Bahia. “It was one of these great moments on the Praia do Farol da Barra. I was fascinated—the waves were high and the sea was roaring. The setting sun produced amazing colors.” Goppold waited for the right moment to capture the silhouettes of the soccer players with the lighthouse in the background. “It was my golden goal,” he writes.
