192 Steps to Mercy Point

By Chant57  
There are 192 steep steps down a cliff to reach this vantage point, at Ponte de Piedade, Portugal, and subsequently a 192 lung bursting, knee crunching steps back to the top. Its a view that is well worth the effort to get there, and the good news is my back didn't let me down, it may be time to feel a little more optimistic!

Thanks for the awards on my previous upload, all are appreciated.

I like the way the railing's shadow makes a ladder on the steps.
