Good morning....
Thank you so much for your votes and comments on the Going up table mountain.....
Also a huge thank you to Prabhas (Prabushinha) and Isabel (Chinga) for their UA's....
Today we are on top of Table mountain at 1085m high. Normally when I go up the mountain I pick a clear day when you can see forever, unfortunately this day was the only day my friends had to go up the mountain....glad we did because the low clouds made it so special.
It was hard to choose a lead image as i like them all...this little girl posing for a photograph caught my eye.
V2 is for all those with vertigo
V3 +4 are for Herman as he lives the other side of the far off mountains
V10 is for Tish...they don't bungee but they abseil off the mountain...yes that's a man going off the edge
The rock formations are for Isabel (Chinga)
Have a nice dayGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I haven't been to South Africa, Colleen, but my wife has. She was at a conference in Cape Town, and had a trip up the cable cars to the top of table mountain, a highlight for her. Seeing your images, I'm even more envious Sad

Vertigo!!! Oh yes. Once I read that it is not really a fear of heights! It is a fear of "edges". Thinking about it, at least in my case, it is really seeing the edge of a precipice that makes my stomach churn and seeing someone standing near the edge......
Really wonderful series and you are right Colleen about being cloudy it has made this series special.

This really is living on the edge Colleen, fortunately I don't get Acrophobia, [fear of heights] but I do get Vertigo [relates to the inner ear]. Well taken, as previously stated, it is the clouds that really enhance these images.................. Having said that, a cloud free day would probably have provided some spectacular views.

I think it relates to fear of falling on your inner ear.
