The first Portuguese sailors to explore the wideness of the sea were allegedly still confronted with the fear of the world to end at some point and their ships to go off the edge. No one ever reported any experience like it. Maybe because this edge doesn’t exist or because no one who witnessed it survived the moment.
I went to Bolivia and I have seen this edge and I survived it. I was able to document the moment while my wife was walking towards earths' edge.

Beautiful and a perfect one for the ToM and I nominated it to be one of the landing page image...It is fantastic to see in the LV...I have nothing more to say but to just admire it. The little bit of land and the person give just enough extra element to the minimalist composition. Awesome work.
I don't usually use such language, but what first came to mind was "pretty cool" !!
I particularly like how you can see through the water in the foreground, because what you can see there almost looks like distant fields, miles below. Rather giving the appearance that this whole scene is taking place in the clouds.
What a fascinating image and landscape. The tiny island seems to nearly float. It has something over the edge but it also has a slightly claustrophobic component despite the wide open. The haze in the lower part allows no view so you're in a way trapped. At least visually speaking, no idea how it feels to drive or walk around but I can easily imagine that you want to find the main land after a while. Definitely a great choice to have your woman in the image walking towards the unknown. Brave gal :-)
Die anderen haben schon alles gesagt aber ich möchte noch ein "faszinierend" hinzufügen. Das ist echte Foto-Kunst.
Ein wirkich toller Beitrag zum Juni-Thema, begleitet von einem lesenswerten Text!

é uma vista bem diferente daquela que eu tive, no lugar da água apenas o branco intenso do sal. de qualquer maneira é bonito. impressionante os efeitos visuais com a água servindo de espelho de ilusões. mais uma preciosa imagem do lugar e do momento.
