Digital translation of Froggatt Edge, Derbyshire by the very talented Sue Nichol, for Sojie 14

Challenge Winner ORIENTAL ART in First Things
Featured In Inspired Art, Just Fun

Full Work in Progress Journal and other versions Here

The Title 斷崖落影 roughly translate to Under the Shadow of the Bluff,
and the calligraphy roughly translated as:
山穷水尽疑无路
Just when your path is blocked by the ocean and mountain,
柳暗花名又一村
behind the dark green trees and colorful flowers there is yet another vista.
(when you hit rock bottom, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel)

Which version do you prefer?
