    Robert - thanks.
Lo - the formation is a natural rock but artificially tilted up and stood on end probably by neolithic people.
Ed - thanks - you agree with forkcandles but I like it dark.
Jomari- thank you.
Mepo - appreciate your comment very much.

    The photo does not give a sense of big but it is a fantastic shot all the same. I presume the tall shape is a stone marker. Love the silhouette and the action of the climber. One of the few times I've seen a figure heading out of the frame which works so well. Kudos.

    Nice composition and subject, but a bit too dark.

    What an unusual formation - very impressive. I like the composition and the way that you have increased the shadows to create the final effect.

    I would have loved to see a bit more of the foreground. Right on theme and well carried out.

    SteveB and aoc - thanks for the feedback - the object is a standing stone (a sort of early version of stone henge).
FC - thanks for your veiwpoint - I like it dark!
Dave, Jade, rd52 and dk thanks also, for your viewpoints - greatly appreciated.

    Striking imagery. Somehow I feel this has an artistic flair which won't be appreciated by many.

    Dramatic shot, very nice. I don't get much sense of being on a mountain, but the spire certainly qualifies as big. Is it a standing stone or a natural rock formation?

    An awfully dark and flat (2-dimensional) image. I see a person and I don't know what the other object might be. I'm puzzled by what this represents.
