Another Golden Star for this great shot Keith ~ although I'd rather be down below than up with you :)))

The walk from Sidari to Lagos, in the heat of early afternoon, did for me and I decided not to venture down to the beach. The balcony was "fun", though.

Many thanks for the GS.

Great shot and scenery Keith, reminds me a little of the Dorset coast.

But maybe a bit warmer, Pete. Thanks for the comment.

Faith in the skill of the builders, is it? Almost like being in a plane..... gorgeous perspective!

I was treading very carefully before taking the shot and still felt a bit queasy when I put the camera up to my eye.

I wonder if the owners will see this shot and adopt the name for the balcony I came up with.

Thanks joyfotos.

No wonder about that!

One always wonders what the owners of things we shoot and post think. I can't decide if it would make others more or less apt to venture out on it for a view. LOL

Quite a few years ago, when on holiday in Mallorca, I coined the phrase "Lycra-Louts" to describe the sort of professional looking cyclists who think they own the road. The BBC used the term recently in a news report about cyclists.

We will all have to keep a lookout for balconies of faith in the news!

Wow! Thanks for sharing this out-of-this-world view. Best regards, David

Thanks David. The view was stunning and worth testing the qualities of the builders of the balcony.
