A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Look Down


Today's theme day is "look down" and you can see many more photographs on this theme at this link.

This photo is almost certainly the oldest stairway/ladder in the city.  It is taken from the top of the old lighthouse, which was built around 1890.

There isn't much in the way of safety gear hear, so we should be grateful that its trustees are allowed to open it to the public.

The descent would be very scary for me! Have you tried it yourself?

Well framed for a look down.

Great capture - I feel the vertigo and shudder at all the modern safety features missing from this ladder!

@Kate - yes I have been up it (that's how I got the shot!
-it's not too bad in reality, we have a young friend who took her five year old up!

What an interesting shot! I'm posting a lighthouse staircase also and it looks wildly modern - and far easier to climb - compared to yours.

I can see that being very problematic for those with a fear of heights.

Good onya! You're a lot braver than I would have been in that old lighthouse.
