Situé au Sud tunisien le Chott El-Djérid est une vaste dépression désertique qui s'étend de Hézoua à l'ouest à Kébili à l'est soit 120 km de long. Sa surface, parfaitement plane, est couverte de sel . Il est traversé par une seule route qui relie Tozeur à Kébili et Douz.
D'une blancheur éblouissante naissent des mirages fictifs et réels, des oasis et des caravanes imaginaires. Ne restez pas trop longtemps fixé sur le même point vous pourriez finir par y croire.

Hi Urs

Good sharpness, a marvellous blue sky, and superb saturarion & framing. The road adds good lead in lines & perspective, & the solitary person animates the scene. Tfs!

Bonjour Urs,
une capture très intéressant!
Détails particulièrement belle Très bon POV's.
Uun paysage exceptionnel. Quelque chose de très différent pour TNE. Utilisé pour les montagnes et les collines .... privesliste No Deal est un peu inhabituel. Mon opinion personnelle.
Un samedi agréable,
Adrian

Hi Urs,

Wow, the road to inifinity. I like the sky/land balance and the woman walking along the road symbolizes the long path we face in life. We each must walk our own. Excellent exposure control, the salt looks almost like snow.

Best regards,
Werner

Hello dear Urs,

Excellent POV and DOF!
Wonderful colors and lighting.
Very well done and framed.
Congratulations and TFS
Sergio

Ciao Urs,


Poor woman, a deserted road and all
this infinite loading a suitcase.
Lost in the desert!
Perspective and composition are very good choice.
Very well done,

Have a nice weekend,

Sergio

quelle grandiose composition de l'image!
c'est toi qui l'as mise en scène ou tu as vraiment vu là bas, au milieu de nul part, une jeune femme tirant sa valise à roulettes?... et marchant en direction de la lune qui plus est...

très bien vu, très bien fait! ♥

Hello Urs,
Amazing shot! road lines are leading the eye at far away in to the horizon evokes feelings for the traveler; what a distance to walk with the luggage.Great job.Congrats.

Bonjour Urs!
A dramatic situation for this woman...I believe :-))
Great perspective...we can see the vastness of the desert and also to imagine the infinite.
Excellent sharpness and light. Lovely shy with the moon.
Bonne dimanche!
Ciao! Vanda

HI Urs
Walking on the gravel instead of asphalt would soon lead to no wheels.
I do see either a road sign or somekind of marker half way up the road what is it used for?
What would be the time apart for a car to pass by?
A dof that leads to more of the same you give the inverse of the light at the end of the tunnel.
Great and well done shot
Dot

Salut Urs
J'ai dû rester trop longtemps le regard tourné à gauche, et j'ai cru voir une jolie femme tirant une valise à roulettes; je vois bien qu'il rend fou ce pays.Pourtant il a de fort jolies couleurs et c'est bien composé; et la jeune dame, était-elle aussi de bonne composition ?...
Henri

Dear Urs,

Wow, what a great POV you have achieved here! A never-ending vision!

Perfect colors, wonderful sky and well done sharpness along with perfect positioning of the woman with a suitcase, all make this work simply great!

Bonjour Urs

Quelle impression de bout du monde et de solitude!!
Je ne peux m'empêcher de penser au fameux film "Bagdad café"...
Bravo Urs et merci pour le partage!
Catherine

Great shot - great composition and good placement of the vanishing point.

J'espère que ce point blanc dans le bleu du ciel est bien la lune car moi je vois des mirages ! Que fait donc cette mystérieuse dame à la valise dans ce bled du bout du monde , ou va-t-elle donc? Voilà la question , j'aime l'idée de toute manière , hé hé , beau ccoup d'oeil mon ami,
Carol.

Hi Urs,
Nice perspective, light management well contrasted colors of earth and sky. IYoung lady at golden point serves a focal point

Hola Urs

es maravillosa toma que representa la soledad del ser humano bien logrado colores perfectos

Bonsoir Urs,

Celui qui n'a jamais emprunté cette route chaotique, ne peut se rendre compte les sensations que l'on a.
J'ai l'impression de repasser à cet endroit.
C'est vrai que c'est immensément désertique et blanc de sel.
Je crois bien qu'à l'horizon, j'ai vu un ou deux mirages... hi!hi!
On y voit aussi , barquette bus abandonnés, des lieux d'aisances rigolos, d'ailleurs je crois avoir entrevu cela aussi sur ton site que je visite régulièrement.
C'est une magistrale et belle image avec ce point de lune.
Merci pour le partage, cela rappelle mes souvenirs.
Bon dimanche. Amitiés.
Yolande

Boa noite Urs

Good note.
Um abraço
Teresa

dear Urs,
beautiful and strange view shot you took,
wide perspective with clear vanishing point is nice,
and the gradational blue sky with moon make illusionary atmosphere,
and and this back figure of walking black lady and her shadow looks very surrealistic in it,
thank you for your excellent shot,
Akihisa

Bonjour Urs,

A very well composed shot, with the focal person and the distant vanishing point balancing each other perfectly.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Urs

A very interesting image here. I like the facts about the place. What about this woman who seems ot be on a long walk? Excellent POV

It seems that I've missed this powerful image ?
Have you tried a monochrome version ?
I thinks that it would be even more desolate and sad

thanks,

Hello dear Urs!

Lovely shot as the road leads to an infinite depth. Lovely sky and the moon captured in the day time is great. Lovely sky with wonderful blue and the horizon well defined. The women beside the road is giving lovely look and action to the shot.

TFS, indeed a great shot!

Best Regards,
Ali
