I Believe I Can Fly

    Newer Older

    Every time I come to Devil's Dyke it feels like I can hurl myself down it and go swooping off into the sky. I've not managed it yet, although a slight miscalculation on wind velocity while power kiting came pretty close.

    It is so hard to get a sense of scale with photos of the Dyke. I've not managed it yet. Some people down in the valley would probably help, but there weren't any...

    Make bigular.

      Just discovered this place for myself! Great part of the world.

      It's very difficult to make a scene like this visually powerful, and thats what youve managed to do. Theres some great tones running throughout the image and i like the high horizon as well.

      Cheers Paul!

      23govier: Very very late response I know, sorry! :o) My shadow has been Photoshopped out, I was seeing if anyone would notice to see what sort of job I did, you are the first to comment on it :o)

      Invitation into one of the people groups in the Amazing Images group series.

      I selected your photo for inclusion in my Amazing Image project which consists of linked flickr groups. With this invitation you have the chance to contribute to the early phase of a project which might evolve into one of the most exiting places in flickr. Getting invited by an administrator is the only way to get your image into one of those groups.

      All people on the other hand are welcome as members even if they don´t have photos to contribute. Just click on a banner on top to get to the group page.I personally have just 5 or 10 photos among 8,000 that meet the standard of this group series in quality and popularity.

      This group series aims at inviting some of the most amazing images found on flickr to create amazing quality group pools concentrating on a narrow topic in each group.

      I know that your image is one of the most amazing that can be found on flickr and likely got a lot of attention and invitations already. I hope you don´t mind to accept just one more invitation.

      Some of the groups in the project:

      If you click on those banners you´ll see a large image view of the group if you select the large size in the tool.

      In contrast to a normal flickr group the administrator selection of all images in the Amazing Image group series makes sure that all the images in the group have almost the same high quality as the photos shown above.

      BTW I want to bring the pool size of my new groups to a more reasonable size quickly. So right now I don´t really have time to write individual comments for your photo.


      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Amazing Image B&W: People, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
