User / DarwinRobot / Stairway to Heaven
Dale Robins / 261 items
It is every bit as steep as it looks and by the time you get to the top, you really do feel like you’ve climbed a stairway to heaven. Thankfully though, that cliff-edge isn’t quite as perilous as it looks, at least it wasn’t when I plodded my way up, which was just a little after I’d watched the lady you see here float her way to the top. I did wonder if she might be intending to test the quality of her umbrella by leaping, Mary Poppins-like, from the summit, but I quickly dispelled that notion because I thought that she would, surely, have chosen to ascend in a magical manner if either she, or that multicoloured gamp, had any special powers.

Of course, if there were to be some sort of landslide, maybe caused by a particularly heavy-footed climber, then those rustic wooden steps may very well become an actual stairway to heaven, or indeed hell, depending on the proclivity of the ascending/descending protagonists.

Something like that.

Northcote Mouth, Cornwall. In the rain.

Note to self: contemplate sentence length.
