Steve Throndson: Really interesting photo - different from the rest. I thought it would place much higher than it did. It was one of my favorites.
Thank you Steve, it's maybe a little out of the challenge theme (no river, no waterfall …), but I appreciate your interest.
Thank you all!
navydad2010: Very nice photograph.
Ed at Ridersite: Congrats on 2nd place. Lots of work went into making that one.
Thanks Ed, you mainly need a lot of patience waiting for the camera making the job for you ...
Unbelievable that someone can give half star to this wonderful picture … Just unbelievable!
Wonderful picture, you deserved a win as my picture did.Well done!
Thank you all.This wonderful place is close to the town of Grundarfjördur in Iceland.The mountain name is Kirkjufell and the waterfalls are named Kirkjufellsfoss.Happy New Year to all
munte: I know this bridge!
Beautiful view from there, isn't it?
Thank you everybody.
Sorry to read about vote manipulation which is absolutely NOT the case at least from my side.You are right this picture won 3 challenges and I'm really proud of but: 1) there was not any rule in this challenge that didn't allow to post pictures previously posted in other challenges and,2) I think that this picture is perfectly suited to the challenge subject.Cheers
Thank you all
also el: nice capture of a most fascinating place and i think it speaks to the theme of this challenge. that being said.... as to your caption, 19 of those 20 people take this same shot of the wave. didn't you read the fine print that said there were to be no more entries of the wave from this perspective?? kidding aside, it would be fun to have a challenge for photos taken of the surroundings of this place, other formations along the hike, but none from this now classic spot. we were fortunate (or unfortunate with 105 in the shade) to experience this in august some years ago. unforgettable experience. unforgettable view.
You are probably right but hey it's so amazingly beautiful !
ffnikclif: This is very fragile sandstone & is too beautiful to destroy. There is a reason for it to be hard to get permits to get to see thiscreation of nature. I have been there when college studends played on it like it was Disneyland. If you are ever lucky enough to see this please treat it with great respect. And leave your skate board at home. This area is teaming with what are referred to as finns. But in the wave almost all have been destroyed by careless people just not paying attention to where they step. And of course by people who simply must have a souvineer.
You are right!
kanban: zarpada foto, excelente composición! y la comento en español porque me cansé de reconocer al inglés como idioma universal.
