This father was carrying his daughter up the steep sand dune. When the two of them reached the top they went running and laughing all the way down the other side.

For nearly fifty miles, from the mouth of the Siuslaw, to Cape Blanco at Coos Bay, the largest area of dunes in the United States lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains. In places, the dunes extend 2.5 miles inland, and some are as high as 500 feet. In 1972, 32,186 acres of dunes, forest, streams, and lakes were set aside as the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

These dunes were the inspiration for Dune, the 1965 science fiction novel by Frank Herbert.

A great angle of capture, Walter, and what fun the girl and his father must have had, running through the dunes Smile Carol

A great point of view Walter, in which to capture this rather beautiful and somewhat tender moment.

A wonderful perspective Walter. Very well composed and I love the use of DoF with the grass in the fground. The colour and clarity are also superb, I feel like I could almost grab a handful of that sand. Nicely done Walter.

Excellent natural framing. The POV takes away the expressions of a portrait and concentrates on the body language .
Tbh you really surprised me with this one... But is is really good and I love surprises!

Beautiful and unusual. I love the way you have used the grasses, they create a sort of veil or screen, they protect the privacy of a very special moment.

Moira's 'screen' of grasses does work very well, Walter. Pov and composition is excellent. A lovely natural candid.

What i first noticed was your use of grass as frame, This works very well, gives a sense of peeking into a gamily moment-- and the clarity and light is wonderful here as well!

I really like the way you've used the blurred foreground grass - it almost gives the feeling that you are hidden from view and looking through it (I don't mean in a stalkerish way, of course Smile) at the interaction between father and daughter. A creative and nicely observed image Walter, which has been very well presented.

Anna
