It was one of that moments, that U remember for whole your life..

After a long, windy and a cold day on a bike, that landscape was the greatest award I could ever imagine.
It was my dream to see such beautiful icebergs and that huge glacier
This breathtaking view reminded me words of Pink Floyd song entitled "Learning to fly" ...

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted Just an earth-bound misfit, I

Pink Floyd is the best for me. This pictures could be something of this song.
Good share, the rigth composition for this song. I like the way you blur the backgroudn. The colors are ok.

Very nice idea, have you thought about it at the time of shooting ?
I like the the colors, pose and compostion.
I also like the song,


Clever with the effects used - conveys lots of motion ... and emotion! -Jenn

The most interesting song ever written by the Pink Floyd IMHO,I have found lots of things and situation to which I can apply this song, it's mood, lyrics, music... which brigs us to another use of the song - a title of a great shot.

...there's no sensation to compare with this.
suspended animation, a state of bliss.
gotta keep my eyes from...

excellent photo!! movement is so pure and nifty, great colors and ambience

Well done.

if you've ever seen the video for Glosoli by Sigur Ros (a post-rock band from Iceland), you'd be amazed by the similarity of this shot and a similar scene in the video.

good job grzesiek!

ciao Grzegorz,

Your description is as interesting as you image, though I'm wonder if the person (is it you?) jumped or was practicing for a ski jump?

good luck at TrekLens,

Richard in San Francisco
