Just a higher platform. Here is a random image I found by somebody on flickr which should give you a better idea on where I was standing while taking this picture:

Two tiny colorful ants climbing on a leaf. Or Gulliver's travels. Just wonderful.

Congrats on the beaut blue, are you that industrialist guy in the movie Çontact with Jodie Foster that lives in outer space? That's the only way I can figure you getting all these high altitude shots ;)

Congratulations on the blue. It's a beautiful creative shot. It's slightly over processed for my taste, but you can't argue with the results.

This is SO beautiful. I swear you must have a teletransporter stashed somewhere. I just don't know how you can get around to so many far flung places, shoot, edit, AND work...

Oh, and congrats on the blue!

Great looking place to have a run.

Top 3 imho, without the hikers to give scale I'd be lost as to what this is, the terrain is fantastic and could almost be an abstract macro, looking foward to the story behind this (bumping to a 9).

Easily one of my favourite shots of the challenge so far. Only thing I HATE is that little red line along the edge of the border, it's a bit distracting and very unnecessary, the shot is fantastic on its own. It's like they are climbing huge bedsheets. The only other minor pet peeve I have is the uneven distance from the people to the edge of the image. the way that line of the hill cuts diagonally through the image is fantastic though. again, I love this, very nice.
