Adrenaline Rush

If you read my story on climbing mountains on my other blog, you will know that I dread riding rollercoasters and other thrilling rides on famous theme parks. Risks and dangers are a part of life, it's true, but I also believe that there are risks you can avoid. The photo above falls under my personal category of unavoidable risk. This is taken at the Genting Skyway station at Highlands Hotel in Genting, Malaysia. My heartbeat went faster and faster, and seemed to ignore my mind's assurance that this aerial tram system is one of the strongest and most powerful in the world. The rains that were starting to fall added to my feeling of unavoidable adventure.

Si vous lisez mon histoire sur les montagnes s'élevantes sur mon autre blog, vous saurez que je redoute des montagnes russes d'équitation et autre faire frémir monte sur les parcs célèbres de thème. Les risques et les dangers sont une partie de la vie, il est vrai, mais je crois également qu'il y a des risques que vous pouvez éviter. La photo au-dessus des chutes sous ma catégorie personnelle de risque inévitable. Ceci est pris à la station de Genting Skyway à l'Hôtel de Montagnes dans Genting, Malaisie. Mon battement de coeur est allé plus rapidement et plus rapidement, et a semblé ignorer l'assurance de mon esprit que ce système aérien de tram est un des plus forte et les plus puissante au monde. Les pluies qui commençaient à la chute se sont ajoutées à mon sentiment d'aventure inévitable.

I see you are a real photographer !
Even in times of fear you keep on shooting ! You passed the ultimate test.
Now we can cover the war in Iraq together! ;-)

Emer said...

No unncessary risks for us, Ipanema. :)

When are we leaving for Iraq, Sidney? :)

Oh oui !
Les risques inévitables !
Très bien dit ! Tu es un poëte et la photo est superbe.
Sur les falaises d'Etretat, j'avais le vertige derrière une butte à 10 mètres de la falaise !

Ah! Dr. Emer ... my own heart beat picked up when I thought of riding a cable car in that rain ...

I always prefer to have both feet planted squarely on terra firma! ;o)
