The person in blue was a lady who probably was in her 60s. I talked with her on a platform midway down the steps. She braved going across driving blowing sand to get to the rock. All of my shots that afternoon were telephoto shots. I will risk my camera in the rain but not in blowing sand.

I quite agree, Jack, She was brave ..but may have been very rich... able to re-purchase lenses and gear like you and I would repurchase soap....But yesterday's image was great . And I will say to you sir that 90% of YOUR images are the kind that I wish I had captured! ALways so awesome and always a story in them. This one here is really gripping with the light off the large band of rock there. Wow. Perfectly done here. I suspect this is a Silver Effex process ing? Really cool work here Jack! Thanks for this!
