I really like this picture Scott, the composition. The small figure in that vast and fascinating landscape introduces scale and makes the image all the more interesting.

My son does appear so small against the huge background and magnificent rocks in the foreground. Thank you for your nice words, Chillbrook.

Such a loving portrait. Very moving.

Such sweet words, Karen…thank you.

Oh wow! Where is that? It’s an incredible view!

Thank you, Jared…it’s out on Antelope Island…seven miles out into the Great Salt Lake, just north of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ah, I’ve heard of it. It’s amazing.

I agree. We will be heading out there again in another month or so to capture the green of the grass and the wild sunflowers that appear to cover the island. Can’t wait!

a wonderful evocative shot – is that the moon way up in the right hand corner?

Thank you, Lois. I’m not sure about the spot up in the right-hand corner…I want to say that it’s sun-flash or splash or whatever the photographers call it. I don’t recall the moon being out that day. We were on Antelope Island for at least a couple of hours…leaving between one and two. I don’t know.

Wonderful perspective and photo!

Thank you, Cee…for visiting and for your nice comment.

Scott… to include a person in such a huge landscape definitely adds some scale, but when it is your own son… now that makes it even more special.
March 22, 2012 at 2:14 pm
I thought it was very special, David…the icing on the cake, so to speak. Thank you.
Great picture Scott. It has feel of real vastness, neatly brought into perspective by your son. Your part of the world is a landscape photographers dream!

Thank you, Finn…and yes, having my son on the rock certainly adds perspective to how incredibly huge it all was/is. I took this out on Antelope Island a few weeks back…I think you’ll remember those posts.

I do indeed. It looks like a remarkable place.
March 23, 2012 at 1:18 am
Very remarkable place, Finn…thank you.

Thank you, Victoria.

This is just the sort of place I would love to be. Great foreground and a wonderful sense of disrtance. The figure adds greatly to the shot too – nice to be doing things with one’s offspring. My son comes with me occasionally so I know exactly how it feels.

Thank you, Andy; it was/is a beautiful place…and all of the kids had a good time. I like that the known body size of my son allows the perception of the incredible scope of the place.
March 23, 2012 at 4:45 pm
What an amazing shot Scott, everything just fits in the right place – beautiful.
March 24, 2012 at 2:20 pm
Thank you, Eve…very much!

Our insignificance in the scheme of things. I almost want to rescue that boy. I don’t know why his presence in that vastness made me a little worried. Strange.
March 25, 2012 at 4:35 am
I was going to include a narrative that spoke to that, George…how he is/we are so insignificant in the grand scheme of things…in what we know as the universe. And how curious that the picture would cause you to be so concerned…he was in no danger during the photo…and he is safe at home with me now…. Thank you.
March 25, 2012 at 2:31 pm
Oh, I knew he was in no danger. It was just his vulnerability in such a scene filled with tension that struck me. You captured the essence of man and nature brilliantly here. The image stuck in my head. I can still see it perfectly. That has to say something about the significance of what you created with the photograph. I don’t think words were necessary.
March 25, 2012 at 3:47 pm
Well I’m glad it made such an impact on you, George…and nice to see that we were on the same wave-length, too. Those were very nice words you shared…thank you.
