The light looks so much better at this time of year than when I saw it in the height of summer. Excellent pov accentuating the height of the cliff towering over the houses. Good high horizon too.

You give us a great vertigo with your shot, well taken and of course good choice for a vertical format, good light and colours.

What a sight!
I feel dizzy looking at the height from where you've taken this interesting shot.

What a view, what a site. People with vertigo problems should stay away from there. They even made a kind of platform to stand on? Really a great view over the valley, and your apparoch works very good with the high wall on the right and the valley below.

I imagine you were on a platform similar to the one we can see near the top of the image? It ceertainly is a fantastic viewpoint and gives a wonderful impression of the land below. It was a good idea to include the cliff face, both for context and depth. Also the people are excellent to prvide some scale. Well done

Excellent point of view and depth. I do not remember this balcony over the void from my only visit there (it dates back to 1981) vbut I am it gives a nice thrilling impression... But your point of view is probably much better.
All the best,

Great POV. I love to see the tiny people in the upper left. Makes everything so vertiginous.

A nice one for the vertigo series once one realizes the size of the cliff relative to the people, great vertical framing to enhance the effect and nice depth up to the background hills.
Have a nice week end JY
