Perfect example of a minimalistic shot being so powerful to speak volumes. Love this one, and would def. frame it RM.

Intriguing shot. Wonder how you reached the vantage point, since there is no indication of it. No shadow to let us know where you were taking the shot. Image tells a nice story.

Thank Matt & Ed,

What, and give away my secrets??? :laughing:

The shot was taken from the lookout in the top left of the following pic. The second shot shows the sandy area in perspective. The second shot is a 3 image handheld HDR to try to overcome the shadows. Please excuse the HDR processing- I am still learning.

Thanks for sharing your secrets and very well illustrated.

As for the image - beautiful minimalism. As the others said really tells a story with so few elements in the picture.

Lovely image! You've framed the shot so that the person is in the ideal position, in my opinion. If you hadn't told us your shooting position, I would have guessed you had been in an ultralight plane. I'd also say it's a very good instructional image, showing us that interesting shots can be found from high lookouts other than the typical panoramic views of the horizon. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Doug, although I think you give me too much credit.

It was a situation as you describe, everyone at the lookout taking photos down the valley, ignoring the detail. When I saw this person, it was one of those rare moments when I just saw in my mind the image I wanted, and snapped away. I later tried to think through other compositions but they didn't work. The first one was the one, without cropping. The person actually stopped and lay down and started making "sand angels" (like snow angels but in the sand), but I think my first instinct was right on this occasion.

I liked this one when I first saw it on Flickr. The perspective and sense of scale is fantastic and the patterns in the sand helps make it too.

awesome image! simple as that.

I'd like to use it as the photography.ca facebook image for a couple of weeks if that's cool.

If it is cool, the photo would need to be resized to 851 X 351 pixels - Can I ask you to choose the cropping on this (only if interested obviously) many thx!

Wow, I am flattered. That is fine Marko. I will have a look at the crop when I get home tonight. Is it best upload the image and to post it back here??
