Photographer Larry Gerbrandt spent nine years capturing on camera the luminous wheat fields and farms of an area known as the "Palouse" in Eastern Washington.
Hikkaduwa beach, Hakkaduwa, Sri Lanka
Tropical fish and colourful coral are high on the priority list for many a tourist here – but we at Beach Tomato HQ love that it's also a great beach for catching a wave or two. There's also an awesome music festival called Hikkafest held on the beach every July and August – cool DJs plus great surf. Hikkaduwa beach lies 3.5 hours south-west of the capital, Columbo. Simply hop on a public bus – they're frequent, very cheap, but busy – so be prepared to stand!
