This picture was the runner up in the first round of the Furillen Photography Competition.

It is an extraordinary image, which clearly moved many of you who voted for it. One person commented that it ‘grabs you by the throat’.

I couldn’t agree more.

For me, the picture captures the theme – solitude – very powerfully indeed. I sense a great deal of emotion in it. It speaks not only of solitude, but of isolation.

The sense of space here, and the mood conveyed through the sky, are stunning.

When I contacted Oyo about the picture, she described the image as a “cry in a huge silence, a way to express the inaudible. I think we are many in this case, perhaps almost all of us”.

This did, I must confess, leave me speechless.

    I am deeply touched by this testimony. To know that other souls have felt what I felt taking this photo moves me a lot. Communication does not always go by words, sometimes by the silence and the emotions it carries. Sincerely, Thank You. Oyo.
