An amazing shot, a contrast of light and color giving it a life of its own! Plus the almost blinding glare of light which almost seems to be lifting him skyward is an awesome sight!

Then you have a road that seems to go forward into infinity and a sky reaching and filled with both light and life as it blue tint breaks through giving you something to fly too is a Breath Taking view to behold.

As he begins to ascend toward the sky yet the title suggests otherwise like a task not yet achieved but the fact that he's gain flight also gives hope that whatever brought him down has the power to lift him back up! The faith of a mustard seed can move mountains if you Believe So Make manifest!

First impression with title and image together: Modern Prometheus.
Very cool. I wonder what it is with the road that adds to this image? Any reason you can give my you choose a road?

Love the light effects and tones in this. Really looks like he has flung himself in front of something oncoming.

this photo reminds me of the drawing made by Saint-Exupery's novel "the little prince" when he dies bitten by a snake ... the fall is beautiful
