Atop – Weekly Photo Challenge

This prompt is not an easy one for someone like me who’s really uneasy about heights.  I’m the woman who once went to view a Spanish villa on a mountain top, and had to crawl on my hands and knees around the balcony. 

However, I managed to capture this lovely view from the cliffs above Durdle Door.

Another array of ‘white-knuckle’ photographic ventures, incuding the view overlooking the French city of Lyon, our boat moored at the foot of the Citadel in Besancon, the ruins of Corfe Castle close to where we now live, and the poppy display at Lincoln Castle.

…and Chesil Beach, taken from the Isle of Portland.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    You showed your inner strength at overcoming your fears. I love these photos as they reflect some of the places I love.


  3. You done good, kid! 🙂 I’d love to see any of these places, only just from a bit away from the edge. I’m not big on heights, either.



  4. I not good at heights either. You “went out of our way” to get these fantastic photos!

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
