Taken in Namibia the beginning of this year. The funny thing was when they got closer to me the woman took photos of me on top of the dune!

As a man I always worry about taking a camera to the beach, you're never sure what people might think your motives are, which is a real shame. Maybe I just imagine that? Anyway I get around it by going to the seaside in October when it's very cold !! This is such a lovely shot, worthy of blowing up large and hanging on a wall.
This is superb! I love the whole composition and the sense of scale and perspective. This reminds me of some of the paintings I've seen over the years, and I can't remember the artists, but there's one called "Icarus Descending" and even though Icarus...um...well...he's descending (actually he's mostly descended and you only see his legs!) The thing about that shot is there's this guy plowing his field. Both he and Icarus are tiny, little bits of the overall picture, and yet they're the focus. It's more like a kind of "putting everything in perspective" kind of an image, where you have humans IN an environment, and this photo has the same kind of effect on me. I love that the family is both diminutive and in silhouette. I think it allows the viewer into the shot in a more interactive way, because the viewer has to guess at who the people are: they're ciphers in a sense, and so the viewer has a little bit of a chance to collaborate with you, the photographer and so there's a bigger chance of making up a story, or bringing a story out of this image! And then there's that drama! Nature does drama so well. Sand. Waves. BIG, whompin' gobs of open space! How superb! And to top it off, it's in black and white, which really does heighten all of the non-visual business that often takes place in photography. I like this immensely. And on another note, it's making me think about the story collection, "Searoad" by Ursula. K. LeGuin. I like that connection. I like this image. Nice shootin'!
