Your photograph is awesome! I love the use of light and shadow. The feeling is of solitude and the enormity of the world. I thought it was taken in a middle eastern desert until I read the caption. Fantastic!

Thank you all again for all the warm words! The place is really magic and - probably for good - is very remote and "underused". Tthere are many people at the parking lot in summer (nobody in winter) but if you hike a little bit you will have it all to youself - and your subject who is seeking the same solitude :)
