King of the World

I was walking on the beach in portugal, when I saw this chap standing at the top of the mountain, (could have been crazy Mal , trying to take another self portrait.)

Sesan Olusoga: Thanks for your appreciation. I thought wow, when I first saw the man on the cliff too. Cheers

Fantastic scale provided by crazy mal. Amazing what lengths he goes to just to help us take good shots. HA ha.
Sorry couldn't resist. Fantastic shot, those cliffs are amazing
Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Aussie.
Great! I'm glad there is a person on the ground too.
Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Mary.
Fabulous shot. Hope he is not thinking of jumping! We have had a problem at one of the local beauty spots here on the south coast of England, with an activity known as `tombstoning`. Check out the link to see just how daft some folk are!

Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Roselyn, I checked out the link, and those are some crazy nutters. I definitely didn't see anyone "tombstoning" here.

I think that is a mystery SCer who has scaled the cliff in search of the perfect shot. We will only figure out who it is, when he posts his picture of you on the beach!
Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Kathy, but my money is still on Mal
I think you picked the best place to be - safely on the ground taking this great photo.
Sesan Olusoga: I've gotta comfess Red, I found my way up there.
The figures really give scale to this picture. Wouldn't get me up there for all the tea in China!
Sesan Olusoga: Well may we wouldn't get you up there for all the tea in china, but I'm sure all the pie n marsh, would do the trick. grin
An amazing perspective. The man, being the king, is smallest of the image! The coincidence of the horizon with the line of the tide is peculiar. I like much the clarity of the photo!
Sesan Olusoga: It was the man that caught my eye as well. Thank José

The guy on top could be mal. I would like to know how he will manage the self portrait this time around! More intriguing is the guy in snow whites in the alcove to the right of this hill.

Great picture.
Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Louis, but I think you underestimate Mal. He is crazy after all. grin

I love it, Sesan! It's a magical moment because all of the men give this fabulous rock scale.
Sesan Olusoga: Thanks Ginnie.
