On top of the world

By ColleenA
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 was planning on doing that Dave but my husband has put the brakes on that one...there are dozens of people who sign up to abseil every day. GrinGrin

What an amazing set of images, Colleen, it must be fun going up in a cable car on a day like that and suddenly you are above the clouds. Superb captures. Carol

Fabulous set. It is the clouds that make these images so maybe in future you won't be so keen to choose a clear day?
Some wonderful captures in this 10. I love V3. Well done Colleen.

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

Superb series !

11 Oct 2013 9:27AM
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.

V8 for me today.

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.

11 Oct 2013 9:43AM
They are all great, Colleen! You had a beautiful time there obviously and you captured stunning images!

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

My word...some incredible views you've got here, Colleen. So cool being above the clouds like that!

I think you went with the right lead image. That little girl with the reds in that light adds a lovely element to that spectacular view.
