Ian, I took a quick look at the shot first thing this morning and thought it was ok. Then I took another look a few minutes ago and noticed the monastery. I then opened the larger version and notice the building on top of the rocks. The image is not OK it's excellent, I like the way noticed something different each time I looked at it.

@Andrew Atkinson: Hi Andrew, I guess it's one of those images that works better as a large print than it does smaller on the web.
