A head for heights

By MikeRC
This started life as a shot I took a few years ago in Gambia.
This guys name is Masaneh and he makes his living bleeding the palm oil out of these trees.
This picture doesn't show it but he is a good forty feet from terra firma.

I took this with a Panasonic FZ3.
While my cameras have got bigger my pictures have not got much better.

thanks for looking....Mike

A good environmental portrait of the guy doing his job. Pity we can't appreciate how high up he is. A bit of space around him would help a bit, but it's on of those activities where a series of images conveys the whole picture.
