Using strobes outdoors

Challenge #1 in the The Creative Light Painter! series. Hosted by nikonboi.
Challenge has finished
Post one of your best shots, where the subject is lit by strobes/ flash outdoors (i.e. not in a house or indoor setting). I am looking to see shots where the background (could be a scenic lake, mountain, building etc) is a couple of stops underexposed (not necessary) while the subject is well lit by the artificial light.
