Superb depth of detail right through the image. Particularly like the little burst of colour from the wild flowers in the foreground. Very nice shot

I get breathless just thinking about it: a fine shot of the pass and it's switchback roads, taking in a huge sweep of the countryside.
I love mountain scenery and this is a fine example from this spot.
