The Best Images Of Scary Views


I happen to be a bit scared of heights. I’ve also noticed that students might find them a bit scary, too, but many are also thrilled by them.

So, I thought a series of images of scary views from spectacular viewing platforms around the world might be a neat way for my English Language Learners to have some fun, learn new vocabulary, develop some descriptive writing practice, and have some interesting stuff to talk about — in English.

So here are my choices for best places to find The Best Images Of Scary Views:

Breathtaking Viewing Platforms is a slideshow from MSNBC.

Sears Tower Opens ‘The Ledge’ is a video from CBS News. You can also see images of the view here.

Grand Canyon Skywalk is another video from CBS.

National Geographic also has a video of the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The 1,000metre-high AlpspiX viewing tower recently opened in Germany to give some amazing views of the Alps — if you’re not too scared to walk on the platform. Check-out the structure, and the views, at the Daily Mail.
