    What a fabulous atmospheric shot Werner! I can taste the dust from here and I definitely want to get out of the way. Great composition and pov. Congratulations on well deserved feature. tony

  • thanks Tony, glad you like it – it was a good afternoon, a bit of dust looks OK in a shot, but too much and the autofocus has difficulty, not to mention the difficulty to see what one is actually shooting …
