'If only.....!' (ODC - The Great Outdoors)

This image was conceived on the back of a visit to Portsmouth Harbour where we entered some of the old fortifications there. It struck me that for some unfortunate people (past and present) - prisoners of war, kidnap victims or those incarcerated for what ever reason, the little chink of light leading to freedom in the outside world is something that is so desperately longed for, but remains unattainable.....

 

The great outdoors to them, had/has a very different meaning to the beautiful vistas and gorgeous landscapes that we generally think of as photographers! Perhaps we should consider how lucky we are sometimes......
