thanks for your remarks. Your are right, the background is a problem. I tried to neutralize it in PS by desaturating and blurring it. I should have decreased the aperture while taking the picture. But I was clinging to the precipice when I took the shot one-handed, I was more concerned about falling down than about DOF.
My best wishes for your many adventurous trips, Dieter
