  1. Dear Joshi Daniel As my feedback on WordPress is not acceptable, I am reproducing it here for your info: Joshi Daniel, this spot is not only awesome but the eyeof the photographer is even more awesome. The golden yellow leaves, the heightof the ‘ancient’ trees, the shape & size of the ageless visible tree-root on theright and the trekker’s inner-most desire to compete with the trees forasserting his existence, are all the elements that contribute to the supremequality of the shot. For a change, imagine what an altogether different feelingwould be aroused in the viewer if the shot was from the tip of the tree, say,by a drone-mounted camera! For a never-say-die photo artist like you, thisshould be sufficient to fire his imagination and make him restless. Hahaha. Best wishes for always excelling your own best performance = Gurudatt

  2. Awesome. I’m an amateur in using go pro, and I use a go pro 4. How did you get the self-portrait? Is it through a timer or something?

  3. Joshi, I echo everyone’s compliments. Maybe it’s because I’ve never used a GoPro, but I’m stymied as to how you got this perspective. Your back? Your feet? This is quite amazing.

  4. I’m not usually a fan of the distortion a go-pro has, but here, it used perfectly – that root! One really get s sense of being there. And what a name that is,! :-)

  5. Human race is dwarfed by the nature in all respect, but we dont seem to understand it. Brilliant click!
