    Edit Photo Details Hussaini Hanging Bridge,Pakistan   #hussaini #suspension_bridge #hunza_river #pakistan
    In order to conquer my fear of heights I challenged myself to cross this vertigo-inducing bridge that sat high above the rapidly flowing Hunza River. I reached for a railing to steady myself, but all I found were two threadbare ropes. I had to look down as most of the rotting wooden planks were missing. I managed to move forward a few feet as the bridge began to sway. The anxiety overwhelmed me as I slowly turned and headed back to the safety of firm ground.

    Kieron, thank you for adding such a great story to the image. I feel like your writing puts the viewer in the scene and adds some great details. Along with the story, I feel like the perspective of the photo is part of what makes the image so great. Often times, it's challenging to convey the scale of the place, so photographing two subjects crossing this terrifying and long bridge plays a great role in showing the magnitude of place.
