When I was but a lad I was climbing a large maple tree in the back yard and had almost made it to the top when I fell. I can still remember hitting limb after limb on the way to the ground. Those limbs saved my life.
Since then I have not had a love affair with heights. In fact I became afraid of them. Then I decided one day many years ago to try and get over it. I now find that if I just give myself enough time I can climb lighthouses and stand out on those railings to admire the view (from against the wall), admire the steep drop offs as the taxi driver descends Gibraltarâ€™s Rock, and take shots like this one (quickly).
