27th place
This was shot at the wonderful Aareschlucht (the gorge of river Aare) in Switzerland, which gets so narrow at parts where you can actually reach for the other side. I wanted to add some human element to give scale so as no stranger was willing to pose still for 13 secs I had to do it myself. Took me some running back and forth (and pretending to stay calm after the running...) but I finally got what I wanted. Then I decided that a second human figure emerging from the background tunnel would be cool, so I decided to pose again there. More running back and forth till I get it right... This is a merge of the two photos, done manually in photoshop.
