First saw this view of the Umbrian village of Gubbio just as the small cable car holding Fred and me left the platform at the top of the mountain. At first my stomach felt in my throat and my heart raced, but then I got caught up in capturing the spectacular views and forgot about my fear of heights.

In the On Top of the World photo essay.

    Superb shot - the lines of the cables add to the feeling. Strange, though - I hate heights (like cliffs and ladders) but cable-cars don't bother me.

    Fantastic view! (And so well documented while quaking in your boots!) I've been on ski lifts like that, but only the enclosed ones.
