Guys thanks very much for the feedback. It bothers me too that the highlights are blown out. It was taken before I became really serious about my landscape photography. I was a bit of an amerture at the time and made the mistake of not taking the photo on full manual. Still I think the shot, though not perfect, captures the feeling I felt.
Have a look at the picture attached. This one was taken on full manual. It a panorama of the drakensburg in South Africa. A place called worlds view and a world heritage site.
