Definitely worth a 5, but what is the square, dark hole in the rock face, just left of centre?

It might be a chourum, a natural through cave. I'll have to check.

Yes, it's a chourum, Martin.

Fantastic - surreal, beautiful and a bit lonely

Wow, Jon, what a shot! Dizzying in its immensity... the human presence dwarfed by so much else.
