[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my contribution to Tsunami Memorial Theme. When I hear about such great troubles and tragedies I always imagine I'm in the position that those people found themselves. Imagine their struggle to survive, run, escape, when see a place they would feel safe and they want to reach it.

The light in background is a hope. The track in foreground - a mark telling - here was a man. Where is he know? Did he survive? Where are those thousands...
Because you mentioned in your opinions a 'moon shot' I feel I should have writen what's that. It's just snow with increased contrast. Thanks a lot for your warm words!

We all wonder...
It's an intersting composition, it reminds me of the moon exploration photos.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Agree with Alagoa.
But all the same... a very strong image.

Very strong and sugestive shot, and the meaning you give to it fits the image just right.
Like it has been said here, it reminds the moon surface. Before reading the note I was thinking "How the hell did he get this picture!?". For a moment I really thought is was in the moon. Silly me.
Great shot, congratulations.

I also thought of the moon landing shot....
Your note is somber and thoughtful. I like your creative thinking and we all wonder....

Here was a man, a woman and a child ...
And here IS a man, a woman and a child !
I think especially to those to survived and are suffering a lot ...
I hope you don't mind if I include in my comment to your shot a link for donations to the attention of anybody on the site.

Have a nice day, thanks for your sensitive contribution and my best wishes to you, Piotr !

L'idée est géniale et le rendu de cette analogie excellent. Il fallait y penser. Very good!

One footprint and one light. This photo speaks many words. This is a very good tribute to all those who have suffered in the Tsunami disaster.

I like the compostion with the footprint at the edge of the frame, which then leads my eyes to light at the top. Well done.

What to say? Tragedy and mourning. Requiestat in pace...

I had not seen your beautiful contribution! your note is upsetting, I am very moved this evening by seeing your photo thank you for Asia


Creative. Great title. You conveyed your feelings of transcience well here. The tragedy should help us remember this.

Incredible atmosphere here, like a 'moon shot' indeed or like a place with humain trace...
