The aim is to balance the terror of being alive with the wonder of being alive
Don't let a panoramic landscape sweep you away to a distant horizon
And leave you with a heart-stopping sense of your own solitude
Embrace the raw existential isolation at the very core of the human condition

I love this...the little person definitely adds a sense of scale to the vastness of the land.

I am far too light hearted to appreciate or even fully understand the aphorism...but I do love the picture!...V :)

Matching so well the words - unless it is the opposite. I am not surprised to see Stu's comment here, as I could think of his images when seeing this one.
There is a perfect balance in this image, even if the man is very little and the rock is very big. The vignetting works well, emphasizing on the subject, like in a Leica ad ;-)

This is fantastic. A different type of photo from you, definitely. I love the minimalist feel and the fact the person adds a sense of scale to the scene. Beautifully rendered as well.
