Photo Hunt #103; High

High is all a matter of perspective.

The Shaw River in Australia’s mainly desert Pilbara region was a little high after a cyclone had passed through.

The bricklayer who added the final bricks on this brick kiln chimney was pretty high up.

Torn between two cultures, this Martu tribesman from the Great Sandy Desert was high up on one of the landmark hills of his ancestors as he looked across his “country”; the land to which he belongs.

But for really, really high, I guess you have to look at something like this.

    My ‘high’ is posted now, if you haven’t visited I hope you can drop by. Happy Weekend!!!

    Thanks, Hootin Annie. I admit to being quite proud of the moon shot :)

  13. Good and different photos, as usual – and then you have to cap it all with a (brilliant!) photo of the moon, out-doing absolutely everyone!

    Thank you for the very kind words, Dragonstar :) I admit to suffering the sin of pride for the Moon photo :(

    Smiling now, Thanks for that :)

  26. Lovely shots. Impossible to pick a favourite.

    PS: Loved your comment on my Verse and Worse post!

    Thanks for visiting, David. I couldn’t help myself with that comment. :)

  27. Great shots. Enjoy your weekend.

    Thanks, incog :)

  28. All great “highs”. Love the one with the gentleman sitting on the rocks,…. looks like the other gentleman is looking for him. Have a great weekend.

    Thanks “kalt”. By a strange coincidence I was watching a TV program I very rarely see and suddenly a photographer I know was on screen talking about her new book which is all about these people. There is a video of the TV interview at http://tinyurl.com/3bqdph

    Please ignore the 30 seconds of horrible commercial which is inflicted on the unsuspecting viewer at the beginning :(

  29. What terrific pictures! I tried to get a good one of the moon during the last eclipse here but I didn’t get the clarity of your moon picture – wonderful picture!

    I had to use a tripod and a remote trigger to get that (and a 300mm lens) – I tried hand held but there was always a little shake.

  30. i’m mesmerized by the shots especially the man sitting atop the woods and the moon.
    sorry for the late visit. my PC just came of bypass.

    Morning Sniffles

    Thanks for visiting. Early or late, a visit is always welcome.

  31. Hey Archie, that is a great collection of high photos. In Australia there is either too much or too little water. Have a good week.

    Thanks for that – it was fun putting it together.

  32. What a really nice take on the theme. Great photos!
