Looks like Joshua Tree National Monument. I lived out in that part of the US for several years. Great composition. I like how the angle of the rocks on the right (with the lines) draws the viewers' eye to the sun.
Conscription is a terrible thing, but having such a small country, as you do, surrounded by all that kind love in the region, it might be a necessary evil. Either way, I hope you get out of the army soon and regain your freedom.
Look on the bright side - perhaps being there provides some unique photographic opportunities?
Hehe NAH. Lots of people like to think it's beautiful here, but honestly? I kinda think this place is dry and monotonous. Plus, I'm more of a winter guy, I like cold environments and rain, which is something rare around here.
I guess the bright side is that it really teaches you a lot about life. I've really grown up during my service, I guess I owe it to the army.
