"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

I like the dramatic feeling of this. I think it's more like the way I would treat the subject, compared with the acrylic painting.

Thanks Keith
Yes from this view point you are much further into the gorge. From here you get more of a feeling of the cliffs closing in which hopefully the portrait format will enhance.
