Malaysia (Borneo), Batang Ai, April 2011

During our walk through the rainforest of Batang Ai we had to cross a ravine which was spanned by a suspension bridge. This bridge was rather long (a few hundred meter) and therefore swinging to and fro as soon as you stepped on it. I wanted to take a picture of my wife, but she didn't dare to turn around (or more likely, she didn't want to be photographed).
Unfortunately this picture is unsharp because of the constant swinging of the bridge, my camera included!

Great shot despite the bridge movement, we have tree top safaris here in SA, bridges all linked between tall trees. They are located in the Garden Route, Knysna/George areas on the east coast. I still want to try it.

I agree with everyone else....i certainly wouldn't have been brave enough!

It's a very nice bridge, but I would not enjoy walking on it or looking down into the ravine. The trick to catching your Sweetie in a forward facing photo would be to cross over first, and suffer the consequence later! :-)

in other words, you let her try out first if it is safe enough for you to cross ? :-)))

This is a great shot . I am not sure that I would be happy crossing that bridge. I did do one in British Columbia one time and I was terrified once I got across because I knew then that I had to go back across again .

Even unsharp it's a great memory of your walking on this kind of bridge !! In the eighties my father made a trekking in Nepal and told me of that too.
