Thank you for the votes as well as time taken to comment

It was a lovely spot to camp on and the surface was actually suitable/flat for this. We slept in a cave for the night and purpose of this was simply to take a pic of the tent. The next morning we had to leave very early and did not then want to have to pitch a possible wet tent. The whole day it was threatening with rain and storms. I took many frames also giving a wider panoramic with the tent in distance. Haven't had time to edit and work on them and for the F.S decided to go with this shot as it required the least amount of editing. Using graduated filters here made it simple enough Post processing wise

Somehow I managed to miss this challenge. The scenery is spectacular and the tent placement is an ingenious idea. It really makes the image special.

Well done Rian. I'll never tire of seeing your shots from the Berg. Keep em coming please.

Good grief - how did I nearly miss this slipping off the front page?
Great shot Rian - I know it was done in haste so you did a good job to set it up and still get a super shot of it before the light went. This shot actually doesn't even do it justice as to what a precarious position this tent is set up in: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114233/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1141717.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114233/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1141717.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' (unedited) but it sure is a magnificent view!

I was sure you would have gone with a Mponjwane sunrise shot but this is still a great one!
Thanks for joining us on the hike - had loads of fun and can't wait to head back to the cutback for some seldom seen angles.

I wondered if this was yours when I saw it in voting. It reminded me of another photo of yours "Dragons Wraith" when I saw it & checked that photo out again but I wasn't certain. A great result. Congrats on such a good placing

Stunning place, stunning photo. I'm glad you didn't sleep in that spot. There could be dire consequences if you 'had to get up in the night'.

Lovely vista. Well captured. Not sure the tent really adds to the image. Perhaps if it was smaller in the frame and served as a supporting element, rather than such a main subject.

Is there even a flat spot under that to sleep in? Perhaps you set the tent up here just for this shot? It was an excellent idea. I should take up hiking.
