    whoa – that’s scary

  • Thanks! The viewing platform is a 61m 311-step climb, so I purposefully packed light.

    Looking down from such incredible heights always makes me feel really and truly ‘dizzy!’ It doesn’t even matter if I’m really there or not; I guess, I must suffer from vertigo; meaning, I get the same sort of ill feeling when I try standing on top of a chair to go change a light bulb! Especially, seeing the blurry effect; makes me think I’m just about to go fall…interesting shot/and, also, very scary, indeed; at least, for people who are afriad of heights! For me, it would be far easier to go take the shot looking up/as opposed to looking down. ;-)

  • Thanks Paul. It’s really quite a view from up on the Monument. You get a certificate too!
