photoblog image The uphill struggle

The uphill struggle

I caught this about two weeks, a jogger struggling up a hill. As human beings we all have struggles and we all have issues, I find my faith in Christ helps me through the hard times. I find that the uphill struggles create a platform for growth as a person and helps me understand more about who I am.

Thanks to everybody for all their comments yesterday, it was much appreciated.

hey asiko,

great shot. i really love the sky and how the hill and the sky dwarf the person. great commentary to accompany the photo. if we never faced uphill battles we would get comfortable where we are and become stagnant.

This is a powerful image. I like it very much.
great shot Asiko!
i love the composition of this picture. the dark ground with arc shape and single object silhouette combined with the cloudy sky, really artistic ... and yes ... it is powerful like Laurie said. i really love it.

This is a really nice shot. There is something a little distracting behind the walker on the horizon but otherwise it really portrays struggle and persisitence

I don't know why but I immediately think of those endurance races, fell running things.

Cool shot with lots of atmosphere, I like it.
I think the tension in the clouds define the struggle up the hill I think you have captured a moment in time with emotion
