Apologies for that. Had to be done so that if any of you fall off a cliff you can’t sue me!

During the course of my own travels I have taken certain risks to get that special photo. You know the one people look at and go wow that’s cool. I may or may not have accidentally ignored certain safety signs and got very close to the edge of things or climbed over certain barriers. (Can you see why I needed the disclaimer?). Do I advocate this? Not really, I am a fool. Nevertheless I am a fool with some awesome photos. Let’s take a look…

This photo was taken at the Grand Canyon. I saw a tiny little ledge in which I could shuffle across and stand on while I held on to the edge… tightly. It was a long way down. Called Grand for a reason you know!

Whilst on a tour of the Grampians and Great Ocean Road I took a step to the edge for a closer look.

Similarly, I just enjoy climbing over stuff. At the Blue Mountains it was no different!

Interestingly, there once was a barrier at Indian Head on Fraser Island but all that remains is a little sign telling you to go no further. Well I could see giant Sting Rays and besides, I wanted to try my own adaption of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker.

During my time Backpacking New Zealand I wanted to get a little closer to the rather interesting rock formations that create pancake rocks.

Depending on your fitness level, doing handstands can be difficult. Doing it on ice is even harder! Whilst hiking up the Franz Josef Glacier I thought I would give it a go. Hint: Ice is slippery.

Like I said at the start. Attempt at your own risk!
