What an unusual shot: perfect illustration of the perspective available with a telephoto (should use mine more, I suppose!)

Best wishes,

Well seen image. Love the repeating forms & the isolated man.
I do wonder if the small area of sand at the bottom is worth keeping so I would try cropping it out.

Regards, Ian.

Thanks for the comments.
I deliberately left the sand in to give the viewer a clue to what was happening, a marker to keep imagination's feet on the ground, so to speak. It was a close call though. Onward, I might crop it and enter the competition!
