    Did you put it on a timer and ran to the end? :)))
    Awesome shot!

  • Yes! It’s not as far as it looks due to the perspective of the wide angle lens. 10 seconds to get there :o)

  • Hi there, thanks for the fav and your kind words. The irony is that I don’t really like BW but sometimes colour just doesn’t work. Maybe it’s something I should work at.
