Thank you for the nice comments and voting.
Taken in Drakensberg of SA and wanted this type of shot for some time now. We had some good weather for this although walking for most of the time in thick mist. This did not hold for long and I was covered in the clouds again.
I don't normally enter for expert challenges and adding typing etc to the image was another new thing for me in working on Ps.

Congrats to all and especially the ribbon winners in this challenges. Some great images in this challenge going way back even to the very last place

Good shot and deserved a good score... Glad to see even a fairly simply edited shot can still do well in an expert editing challenge.
I have so much more appreciation for these type of shots now - Thanks again for taking me up there this past weekend!

Rian, I've woken up to that view a few times before, many years ago when camping on the Mont-aux-Sources plateau. Makes you want to jump, doesn't it?

Never managed to photograph it though. Congrats!
