What an amazing view, really well painted

Stunning viewpoint

Brilliant painting Mark.

Amazing painting, Mark, wonderful viewpoint and great background.

Gosh this is a wonderful composition for this beautiful painting Mark.

A great sense of height in this, I feel quite dizzy. Brilliant

Thank you all for your lovely comments. This is one of those that worked right from start to finish. Very satisfying when that happens.

Super composition and lovely values!

Superb Mark!

Excellent work Mark!
