The small figure in this image set me musing about the insignificance of humanity in the immensity of the universe………

Please enlarge to appreciate the small figure :)

Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    Another beautifully composed image with a lot of depth – and wild surf! The small human figure certainly does remind one of the vastness of nature and relative insignificance of any one human.

  • Wonderful comment. Thanks Celeste.
