Not on your nellie ...


Oh yes, I can clamber the 200 steps to the top of the SE Pylon which is where this photograph is taken from, but you will not find me climbing the arch of the bridge like this intrepid lot. The cost of a climb during the day on a Saturday is AUD198.

That would buy me a Bushnells 8x42 binocular!

Ha! The part I'd hate is coming down again. Fantastic shot.

I haven't done the bridge climb either but my sister who has done it three times, raves about it.

I love this shot and I'd love to do a climb like this!!

This is clearly no place for someone with acrophobia. I'm with you kid.

No fear of heights here but not certain I'd be game for this part of the adventure.

And for all that money you would not even be allowed to take a camera with you!

I like this shot.

I'd like to do the bridge climb one day but don't know if my knees could take it. Must get up the pylon as well, have never done it. Great perspective on the climb.

I have done the climb to the top - although not with a tour, just a good a view from the pylon, a great bargain - not many left.

A beautiful blog with a lot of wonderful photos.
Nice to found this blog.

I've done the climb (it was a work team building gig so I didn't have to pay). You don't need to worry about your knees or anything ... it's more like an easy stroll. People told me that before I went and I didn't believe them but it's true. In fact a bit of an anticlimax but perhaps more of a triumph for people who don't care for heights.

Nope, huh uh, couldn't catch me up there - give me the binoculars any day!!!

A great shot though. Love the angles.

So did you stand on tippy toes to get the shot then?

*grin* ... absolutely ... and they have sheets of perspex to further confound the height-challenged!

diane said...

fabulous view from up there. I bet that took some plaque off your arteries.

Julie said...

Ahha ... but they have thought of that. It is 200 steps, right. And about every 50 steps they have either a landing or at the least an exhibition of photographs.

But I was with my little brother who has a leaking valve, so we took it steady.
