Welcome to this Challenge, the 1st of the Disturbing or Intense series. PLEASE READ THE RULES. Looking for desolate, agoraphobic, vast Landscapes or Seascapes which overwhelm & express an unsettling or disturbing experience to the viewer. Humans, animals or other subject elements are best kept few in number & be small & overpowered by the vastness of the scene. Careful composition & the placement of visual elements is usually critical in such a landscape. When voting & allocating points, please keep this brief in mind. Have fun!
