  3. Brilliant. To have the figure in the shot gives scale and adds tremendously to the composition. Excellent stuff Scott. 🙂

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…it was one of those moments that just jumped out and begged for a shot…captured a couple of them before he made it to the other side and in front of the mountainside. 🙂

  4. Awesome… and just where did that wall lead to? Looks like an interesting, possibly hazardous, ending there. But it’s a great composition with the added human element. I love how your photos are evolving.

    • Thank you, Miss Gunta…this is actually the dam on one of our alpine lakes up here in the Wasatch. I’ll be having a couple of posts shortly that showcase the entire visit up there, as well as providing a bit of a historical context. This hike was a bit special, too, in that my son joined me for it…and that’s him on the dam wall crossing to the other side. Thank you for your nice words about my photos, too. 🙂

  7. Strange place for a wall, was it there for a reason?

    • It’s actually an old dam on a mountain lake, Leanne.

      • I did wonder.

        August 7, 2012 at 5:51 am

        • Yep. I will have another couple of posts on the visit to the lake within the next few days…still need to go through the hundreds of photos that I took and put it all together.

    Wonderful shot, Scott. It’s quite a statement – the small but determined human, striding out there in the majesty of the earth. A really wonderful capture!

    • Thank you, Lois…it was very striking when I turned and saw him there against the lighter background…felt very fortunate to have caught that moment. 🙂

  9. What a difference a figure can make to an image – a rather ordinary horizon completely transformed. Magic.
