Making an Effort to Get the View

We all love those panoramic photos with breathtaking views, but it is often a struggle to get to the location to take those pictures. Whether hiking to the top of a large mountain, making your way up a steep set of stairs, or even climbing up a ladder it can be exhausting and even sometimes risky to get that perfect shot. There have been a few times when we have looked at a rickety ladder or seen a trail on the ledge of a cliff when we’ve decided that the shot “to die for” wasn’t literally worth the price. We definitely don’t want to be one of those people who inadvertently fell off of a cliff while taking a selfie of themselves. This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is about Outdoor Ways to Move Up and Down.  What lengths would you go to in order to get that memorable photograph.

    Great photos but they do make my legs ache just looking at all of those stairs. Something rewarding about getting to the top though isnt there?
