Oh, I just love this tree!

This shot reminds me of this shot, and another IPA 2012 Nature Finalist (!!) and a 3rd place in Trees.

I wish I could photograph one some day.

This has to be my favorite shot. For me less is more, this image invokes a sense of minimalism and siplicity, such a beatiful shot.

Faved...

An Iconic picture...!

Like a flag...!

Swedish flag is yellow and blue...
Iconic too...
but not as strong as this...

Here we see:
Nature is much much stronger...
than Icons...
Trees...
or Humans...

We depend on the land...
We Belong to the Land...
in circle of life and death...

Thank you for this picture...
Greetings Jakob.

I remember photos you uploaded two or more years ago- they were stunning already, but now? For me it looks like you are constantly travelling through some photographer paradise, being in charge of time and space.. I'm speechless. Pro.

The clouds ar awesome, the pose is classic yet the color of the sand dune is much yellowish/brownish than we are used to see. Is it due to post processing or time of the day?
