Lots of people, young and old, make their way up the long staircase (260 steps) to the Tian Tan Buddha.

A real walk for "the young at heart" and in pretty good shape. You shot from a fine viewpoint to give us a nice view of the walkers.

A fantastic image, Steve - really tells the story...I think if these folks are like me, they would be so happy to have their feet on terra firma, they woukld be hanging around trying to get the nerve up to go back and THAT could be why there are so many ehre ;-) Just a thought ;-) Cool shot!!

What an incredible vantage point you provide as you look back from where you came! Thankfully it seems as if they provide enough landings. ;-)

How many steps did you say this is? A very interesting "street/stairway scape" shot; am wondering how out of breath I would be right now if I climbed up this stairway.
