i heart faces | “from a distance”

**edited**

I am so completely thrilled to say that my photo in this challenge was selected as a Top10 winner! It came 8th, out of the 556 photos entered, and I’m so excited. I am in awe of so many of the photographers that enter these challenges, so to be chosen by Australian photographer Dan o’Day as the 8th place winner feels AMAZING!

So, I will very proudly display this winners button…

This week’s photo challenge at i heart faces is “from a distance”.

I took this photo at Maitlands Beach of two people climbing this huge sand dune. There are a few things I love about this photo: I love the ripples in the sand, the patterns made from bird’s feet, the warm colour of the sand and of course I love that the shadow of the two people climbing on their hands and feet looks to me like an elephant (doesn’t it??)! Pretty cool.

Take a look at some great images over at the i heart faces site. With every photo challenge I am always humbled when I see the talent out there… I realise how I need to practice and work at getting to where I want to be with my photography! I am so inspired by the creativity and the great photography I see there.

Thanks for looking, Paige.

  1. Wow, this is amazing, Paige! You had dropped by and left a comment on my entry, thank you too, and you had said that mine was different from the other entries … well, I have to say the same about yours! This is an awesome capture!! And I do see the ‘elephants’ there, as well! Looks like you were high above in a desert, not on a sand dune at the beach! Very cool!
