Life is good!

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 21 November 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I selected this photograph as my favourite because of the sheer joy and energy this child radiated when taking flying jumps down a waterfall.

It was taken at a waterfall north of Chiang Rai in Thailand.

I took a series of photographs on that day. You can see them here

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

The joy of living is easy to see from this picture. The child experiences a jump at each new adventure, and not a moment to fly like a bird. What one better.

Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

Impressive...I don't know how many catches you needed, anyway if it's the first one it's an achievement.
Usually I'm not a fan of fun shots especially when they're put in front of the scene with recognitions, but this one is more than fun, it has some poetry mixed with danger, so congrats, deserved in my opinion !
