CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Layout Backgrounds: Size and Position

Need help figuring out why my image is not showing up in my main header.

I've checked multiple times my code matches the code in the video exactly. The mountains.jpg image is in the image folder.....

From my style.css folder:

.main-header { background-color: #ffa949; padding-top: 170px; height: 850px; background-image: url ('../img/mountains.jpg'); background-size: 40%; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: center; }

Try removing the two dots in this line: url ('../img/mountains.jpg');

See if that helps.
