To the Top

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 19 August 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

This is the last steep bit of trail to the top of the mountain. These ladies and I had been taking turns passing one another on the way up. They were much faster and didn't have a ton of camera gear with them.

This captures the moment so well . . even to the extent of leaning in the safe direction of fall !

Excellent capture and very good framing. The colors are stunning, and the beautiful mountains, we have the feeling of walking in the middle of a field of flowers.
Have a good week.

Longroute from Cagliari, Italy

Here I like the line of the foot path which intersects with that of the profile of the hill. It gives the sense of a hard and tiring hike.
