Green Wall by bwiti Green Wall by bwiti
"We, the Penan Selungo of Sarawak, are indigenous peoples who have been most affected by the forced destruction and transformation of our land. Our ancestors were nomadic huntergatherers and we have only recently started to settle down and learn farming. Even if our lifestyle has changed a lot over the last decades, we remain faithful to our tradition and we still want to live in harmony with our forest. We have tried many times to protect our land
rights, but our blowpipes and our culture are non aggressive compare to the bulldozers of the companies. The destruction of our forest takes place in front of our eyes.
After several decades, the social, economic and ecological impacts of an unconditional exploitation of natural resources are too obvious to ignore. The disappearance of our food source, medicinal and other plant and animal species, the pollution of soil and drinking water resources, soil destabilization through the destruction of natural forests, problems related to our health and social welfare are just some examples."

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-06-01
Green Wall by *bwiti ( Suggested by encorine and Featured by 1pen )
:icon1msdavinci:
My first impression was that my breath caught in my throat.As the shallow clouds seemed to drift gracefully across the horizen at an angle, made for an iimpressive depth perception shot.
Now, the time of day that you chose was spot-on. It put just the right angle and sunlight exposure on your background cloud bank, which also reflects exposure on the ones in front.
As for color as opposed to black and white, here again the majority seems to suggest B&W exposure, but with the clouds in front I see beautiful blues in varying shades. You have an absolute winner on your hands.
What do you think?
