I really wanted to reflect the dusty semi aridness transferring into lush grasslands, and keep the colours relatively muted, so I was trying to keep a palette that was slightly 'different' to the norm while getting across the feel I wanted, as well as having your eye getting led in using the path between twin rocks pass.

Going back I would change a few things - I'd love to add more texture for starters... but I'd also love to reframe so that things are less center - center and more follow the rule of thirds!
