The ‘Hanging Monastery’ is 75km south of Datong in the North West of China. The river here was prone to flooding so the monastery was built high above the canyon floor, making use of rocky outcrops and stilts to secure a precarious grip to the cliff face.

Great point of view to show us the construction with the stolts on the edge. Nice textures and details, and well composed with the lettering.

You found a great POV for this picture, and it was clever to show us the writing on the wall. The red characters a really catchy.
