Personally (and happily so) I don't have a crippling fear of heights or ascending buildings or whatever to get that photo off the edge; but I have huge sympathy for people who's fear is that crippling that they just simply can't get up/out there. Similarly, huge respect and hats off to the ones who face their fears, grit their teeth and with only glimpses through narrowed eyes, take those much sought after photos.

final bit is even steeper
and seems more precarious.
|The view down from the stairs!|
This post is more of a photo post but also respect to those who face their fears and to those who just can't do it, I have understanding - and if we ever meet and you need somebody to take those edge/height photos for you, I'll be happy to oblige.
