The Ascent

By TheURL  
This was another shot taken at the Khongor Els Sand Dunes in the Gobi desert in southern Mongolia last month. Although I had to use a fair bit of zoom it has most of the ingredients you need for this shot - a razor sharp edge, virgin sand, the footprints on the shadow side of the ridge, and a nice long shadow of the man. The film is here : I should stress that my channel is not monetised so the self-publicity is purely a vanity project. Smile

A very nice image, especially with the ridge coming up out of the bottom right corner.

Mod gives it a bit more "welly"
