Our aim today is the Ocean.
We will have to cross
A slice of empty desert
In order to reach the Banc d’Arguin.
Some light clouds
Are painting the sky this morning:
I'm searching the light.
After leaving the campment
I’ll keep on looking at the sky
In search of the best clouds
Then, I’ve just to choose
Between the several
Stunning rock compositions
That are common here
The one closest
To a stairway to heaven…
from "Stairway to heaven" (Led Zeppelin)
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

Hi Luca !
Often, I don't like when there is too much sky but here with the clouds, I really appreciate your composition. However, the light on the rock is excellent !

I love desert landscapes and I love clouds. So the combination of both is superb. The clouds seem to form a v above the rocks which are so sharp.

Hi, Luca -
I like the balance of sky and sand here; it emphasizes the vastness of the space. The position of the rocks vis-a-vis the clouds is well done, too. And the lighting is excellent. The sky does look slightly overpolarized in the corners, is the only problem I have.

superbe image et belle opposition entre la couleur du sable et de la roche, et du ciel

Un scatto superbo, il cielo è veramente speciale!

superb picture, the lonely rock under that spectacular cloud pattern with a good light makes a winner.

somptueux cette qualité d'image!

I really appreciate your composition.
The alignment of the rocks in the axis of the clouds is superb.

A lunar landscape, no?? Your presentation is well composed, colors nicely saturated, and I especially like the cloud display. TFS. Gerald

un posto mitico. Belle anche le nuvole concentrate sopra il soggetto.
Ben fatto, bravo !

magnifique composition. Les couleurs sont superbes et la profondeur est immense. J'aime beaucoup ces legers nuages dans le ciel. Félicitations.

Hi Luca..nice composition. Great sharp details.

Superbe photo, Luca! La composition, avec les magnifiques nuages parfaitement positionnés par rapport aux rochers, est très bien "pensée". Les couleurs sont trèsbelles et la qualité d'image excellente. Bien vu, le titre!

effective simple composition. I like great perspective and beautiful blue. greetings.

The shades on the rocks really add to it. The rocks would have become overy light if oyu would not have choosen this point of view with the shades. The skyline and the division land-sky is very nice.

I like this one very much Luca. It's a simple composition, but the light is wonderful and that cloud formation weighting over the rock is amazing. Love your color tones here, specially the earthy tones in the bottom. Very good.

Excellent use of clouds Luca. The rocks are interesting and I like the shadows. Very well composed too.

Hi, Luca. A wonderful sky with these clouds forming a triangle. The lightness of the clouds contrasts with the massive character of the rocks in the foreground. The graphic side of the image is a real success. Very good contrasts and light.

I like the whole series but this one looked really great. The combination of rocks and a great blue sky is really "my thing". TFS
carlab (2095) 2008-01-25 2:54
luce, colori, e anche le nuvole sembrano stare lì per sottolineare la tua inquadratura

What a composition, & its worth comments on it....
pasternak (15165) 2008-02-01 11:39
Fantastic one, Luca, with the stones below and the clouds above seemingly moving towards each other...

Che bella foto Luca! Uno scatto daffero ben fatto.. direi che è tutto al posto giusto!
Spero di vederti presto.
