Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

I think this week’s photo challenge is brilliant. I’m always trying to remind myself to look up, especially when I’m in the city, so the photo challenge gave me the perfect opportunity. There are so many things you miss when you don’t look any further than straight ahead.

I took advantage of the sunshine we’ve had in Cardiff this weekend to go into the city and see what was above me. Here’s what I saw:

Travel theme: Up

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Up. Click here to see the other entries.

This gives me an opportunity to talk about one of my favourite subjects – skiing! I know I manage to fit skiing into almost any theme, but bear with me on this one.

To have the opportunity to ski down a mountain, you have to get up there in the first place. A lot of hard-core touring skiers walk up the mountain, but I prefer to take the easier route – lifts.

This chair lift in Seefeld also allows you to get on halfway up. They got the sequence wrong one day and I had to shout to the lifty to turn it off before a big Austrian man sat on my knee!
