    really like this work doubleblind .. it’s got composition, mystery, atmosphere, and you have to really look into the work to appreciate what’s given up in the finer detail :))

    A masterpiece!

  • Thank you very much for this great word ‘masterpiece’! (But I think myself far from creating masterpieces)

    Thoroughly amazing. I’m not sure what I’m looking at but the scope is a heart-stopping feast. The figures in contrast to the elements, and the angle and distance of the view, like flying above something of thrilling danger.

  • You’re looking at a slope with different kinds of snow and snowdrifts. Indeed it might be a very dangerous situation depending on the time of the day. I made the photo with a zoom lens from the opposite slope being interested in the texture of the snow and the little ‘brave’ trees in it. Later I decided to mount this mountain hiker to achieve a certain kind of identification.
    Thank you very much for your wonderful comment!

    Aha! thanks for the details. The hiker, and wonderful shadow of him add much to the danger, I think the element that he is surely unaware of what he’s walking into or a life/death mission. The small dots by the brave tree above I thought skiers. It’s like a splendid movie opening, the camera ready to move in for the story we are eager to hear. I really love this

  • Thank you again for viewing with profound interest and commenting!
