  7. Quite extraordinary. I imagine this is one of those situations where a camera can never do justice to what lies before you. And that’s not meant to indicate a deficiency on your part Edith – it’s a great image – but sometimes scale and majesty can be just beyond the capacity of any camera. I know this from some of my own experiences. I would love to see this with my own eyes.

    • You’re absolutely right Andy. It is quite majestic and I tried my best to do it justice but it really must be experienced in person.

  10. Love the composition, nice shot. A place to make you think about all who’ve gone before us and a reminder to “seize the day”. Happy travels!
