Just back for a recent road trip. this image was taken at Sossusvlei Namibia. Raging wind conditions made shooting difficult. Mnage to capture this hiker at summit of Dune.

Welcome back Peter. I am especially looking forward to some Etosha pics in the Wildlife section :5
This is very nice - ethereal and moody...as we've become accustomed to from you.
I like the high key sky and how it offsets the scene in the FG. The hiker really adds some perspective here.

Hello Peter

Very interesting composition/image here. I too like the hiker and the feeling he is struggling in the wind.. Nice balance of black on white.

Super shot Peter - it is amazing how that hiker first draws you into the frame. Excellent detail and tonal differences.

Beautiful image, Peter. I love the tonality, the feeling of wind, the placement of the hiker and the wonderful lines:S3:
