Every photography trip I go on I challenge myself to pick a word, and to try to define it via photograph. This word for this photograph was "Hope". Over the past few years the world has seen some pretty horrific events, but no matter what the human race perseveres on the basis of the word "hope" (so I feel). "Hope" is one of the only words to penetrate those dark moments to bring back balance to our lives. This photo was taken at sunset, on top of the ridge-line of a dune, looking down.
