Welcome to the last Monday of beautiful August, by the way i didn’t get an August visitor but i got a lot of things this month. Top of my wishlist was a new Wide Angle Lens for Architectural Photography, and it was a beauty. Took it out for a spin and my recent WPC post – Ooh Shiny Sky Bridge shot was also taken with it.
A day out at the Lekki Conservation Centre Cont’d.
Its not often one gets to sway high in the air over a thick swamp forest. Well on a whim this past Friday i decided to go explore a local tourist spot in Lekki Lagos; Lekki Conservation Centre with the mind of walking the very much talked about Canopy Walkway.
I’ll let the above exclamation define the experience. At a whooping 401 meters long (1315.62 Foot long) and at the highest point 22.5 meters high (73.8 foot high) it’s the longest Canopy Walkway in Africa and Second longest in the world…..Yikes!. In most cases i just shrug at the numbers and say i can’t be all that but on Friday i held my tongue right back, affixing it to the roof of my mouth throughout the walk….mostly anyway.
If you ain’t got mind don’t bother as you literally swing through the air, if your walking companions aren’t great on their feet. Luckily my group consisted of i and my troublesome friend Toyin, an old well rounded couple with the woman being of better courage than the man and a friendly guide that held his belly deep laughter throughout whilst walking without touching the rope. That was just plain cheating in my opinion *__*) .
Somewhere after crossing the first walkway i grew a second liver right under the quivering first and actually paused severally at the middle of 4 of the seven walkways to take shots 😀 . Below is a shot of the end of one of the several walkways, its really shiny steel and a marvel of design but i thought that up right when i got back to flat, un-moving ground -__-) .
So, after listening to my Adventrue (Ordeal) what Shiny thing caught your eye of recent?
