geez, what a terrific shot - and great cropping too. My ex took one of me, sort of similar :)

Astounding image,'s arms outstretched in reverence to the power, the majesty, and the grandeur of nature. The crop heightens the drama of the scene, as does the red jacket.

The rock you are standing on looks like a miniature Half Dome.

Really nice with your colorful jacket and powerfall waterfall.

Such a cool shot!

Astounding - for me it captures the glory of being in the natural world. I also love the crop. It is almost as if you could fly off into the glory of it all.

The theme is the same -- man overwhelmed yet exhilarated by the natural world. We have both shot this concept many times. But this one works differently -- the horizontal thrust of the arms and the cropped frame suggest that nature's power is infinite. Which it is. The red jacket is a stopper, but the scale incongruity and directional incongruity (wide frame, high waterfall) are even more important.

What a wonderful shot to showcase the absolute majesty and power of nature, Dave.
