What Gareth said about his photo:


Hi Colin, I’ve attached a photograph I took while on hot air balloon ride over the Namib Desert at Sossusvlei in Namibia last week. Hopefully this makes the cut for the completion!! Enjoy your break to Portugal.  Gareth.


What our Judge, Laurence J. McMahon said about Gareth’s photo:



Gareth Byrne’s image of the hot air balloon works because of the time of day.

The beautiful light reveals textures and shapes on the ground.

The balloon works as a subtle splash of colour and interest which leads the eye to the redder mountains in the distance.

Well done.
