WOW!!! What a magnificent structure and superb photography. I did not remember seeing this at Kew Gardens so started researching it. I found where I could take a virtual walk on it, and it was so neat I bookmarked the site. What a GREAT addition...I would LOVE to walk on it through the canopy of the trees. Your shot are absolutely beautiful. Super Shots~SS!!!

There is one in Singapore where it was free of charge, and another in the Gold Coast of Australia, where you have to pay.

These walkways have become very popular and in some places, is a great idea. Walking on them I sometimes think that now I know what advantage monkeys have. :)

Ooooh I would love to take a walk on this treetop bridge. I would feel like Tarzan skimming through the trees. MB

I love this walkway! The view from up there is amazing! But my favorite element from these photos is that yellow-leaf tree in the last one! Wow! Grear color!!

Francisca said...

Oh oh... got weak in the knees on the last photo. Vertigo be damned! I'd still take the walk!

VioletSky said...

That is one scary looking walkway. Maybe Francisca and I could hold each other's hand on the walk.

I absolutely love that last shot from above! But not sure I'd have the guts to walk there as I'm deathly afraid of highs ;-D

Jacob said...

How wonderful. I'm skittish of heights, but would have no problem on this walkway. The colors here are delightful.

We ran out of days in London to visit Kew Gardens. Next time.

I wonder how long the walkway is to the other side? That would determine the height of my anxiety! :-)

At first I thought we were in a rainforest - this is great. I'm sure the walkway wasn't there when I visited Kew in the 1970s!

This looks like a fun walk! Very nice bridge and certainly something different.

Great shots but I am afraid of heights so if I were there, I don't think I can take pictures...
Have a nice day.
