This was my first trip to a proper desert. It’s the kind of desert that I imagined after watching Lawrence of Arabia countless times (it’s one of my favorite movies). Getting up and down these dunes in the middle of a hot summer day is enough to make you collapse. I think I lost one liter of water per dune. - Death Valley, California - Photo from #treyratcliff Trey Ratcliff at http://www.StuckInCustoms.com
https://flic.kr/p/39bEP | Fire Canoe #2 | Looks better here: 'Fire Canoe #2' On Black A couple of notes about this image...first the paddling technique is correct--its a way of paddling solo--obviously only used in this kind of condition (calm, no wind)....secondly about the post-processing, I boosted temp and contrast in the RAW converter then tweaked levels to achieve the colour This will be the last canoe shot for awhile !
"...I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.,," (с) Before sunrise, 1995. (trilogy) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112471/
