The insignificance of being

One afternoon during a winter visit to Port Pegasus five of us decided to climb Bald Cone. As I approached the final section I noticed two of the party standing on the summit. To me they showed the insignificance of humans in that magnificent landscape so, despite the quickly failing light, I took a couple of shots.
