Incredibly stunning landscape. I stared at it for more than 15 minutes last night. I know you are mostly into people, lighting and the essence of storytelling: but i found this moving as well. (Even when I stopped being a member I came back to look at your photos) I am impressed on how you can manipulate natural lighting as well.
Maybe it was the music i was listening to last night, but the horizontal lines, balance, tones and structure all make this a photo that is epic in symmetrical simplified grandeur: just a simple path, leading up a simple mound in a place far from simple.
Jide Alakija: Wow! That's some comment. Thanks. Yes I'm currently exploring a different side to my photography and quite enjoying it too.

bottom half is a bit too grainy for me but as a whole it's extremely impressive looking...
