Nokia World is just around the corner 5-6 September and the excitement continues with rumours of a Windows Phone 8 PureView device. However, before we get ahead of ourselves, let us take continue to follow my adventures with the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone.
I am afraid of heights but on this occasion braved it to bring you some images outside of my comfort zone.You can view this article in two modes. You can read through my adventure here with a few key photos before heading on to the full gallery or if you rather, you can jump to the very end to view the gallery on its own. However, the latter is rather uninteresting without my chatting about it first, so I hope you will stick with me for the moment.
The Xstrata Treetop Walkway is a 59ft (18-metre high) structure with a 200-metre walkway allowing you to get a unique birds-eye view in the tree canopy.
The Treetop Walkway was designed by Marks Barfield Architects, who designed the London Eye and the walkway was opened to the public in 2008.
For those of you with plenty of energy, access to the treetops consists of 118 steps from the lower ground to walkway.
Two things about the TreeTop Walkway had me in shivers, firstly the height, I did mentioned I don’t like heights, even those of two flights of stairs. Secondly, the Walkway is built of a flexible material. This means that it flex slightly in the wind and you can feel this movement throughout the structure as you parade across it. Oh, and least I forget, the landing platform and the walkway itself, is made of a type of see-through mesh construction. This means, that when you look down on the floor that you are walking on, you can see-through to the ground level.
However, before I scare you off completely, let us take a walk along the TreeTop Walkway and picture the beautiful flora and fauna that surrounds it.
In some places you will see an image followed by a zoomed in image. This will help give you an idea of the close-up mode on the Nokia 808 PureView.
I hope you enjoy my trip on the walkway, as much as I have, even though it was terrifying.
