By no means am I an expert in Macro, but I have a good friend who does this frequently, and by watching him, I may be able to pass on a few of my observations. Before I go on, your image is off to a good start - great subject, cropped in close, and your use of a Macro lens. It is however "soft" rather than sharply focused and this is detrimental to the idea of a macro image which should bring out the details, patterns, & textures because it is sharply focused.
WOW - beautiful amazing landscape - I just read an article entitled "The High Concept Image" - this is a perfect example of the type of image and the type of person who the author/photographer was describing. Sorry, this image and your story jumped out at me - you will enjoy the article if you take a peek at it.
