I'm so glad this one popped up in the comments list! I keep wondering just where I'd seen it before. It's such a cool shot!

Hi Kamaly,

I'm glad you still appreciate the shot, but I'm not entirely sure I understand your comment. Are you saying that at first you could not remember where you had seen the photo or that you still don't remember where you have seen the photo?

Best luck in the NPC. Apparently you are single handed representing your country this month! But please, don't feel any pressure because of this little detail :-)

Hi Gil! - oh, no, I wasn't meaning I thought you took it from somewhere!! APOLOGIES for that comment sounding like that. Nope, I just remember this shot from the NPC last year, but I haven't seen it pop up for a long time, and I'd completely forgotten whose photo it was! (LOLOL: he'll appreciate it a lot, but for some reason I'd been mis-remembering that it was one of Norrel's photos!)

Anyhow: GREAT photo. I still love it for the composition, the curve, the ant-like people extending off into the mist. Cheers!
