Black and White Panorama of Copenhagen, Denmark

The tower of Vor Frelsers Kirke, meaning “the Church of Our Saviour” in Danish, is one of the most amazing vantage points in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. And what’s best, this great vantage point is open to the public.

However, before you take any pictures, you must actually climb the tower on your own. What is unique about it, is that the staircase is located outside of the tower and not inside it, as it is usually the case. If you suffer from a fear of heights, a.k.a. acrophobia, getting there will not be easy. Even though it is impossible to fall down, unless you really want it and jump, you may feel very uncomfortable climbing these stairs.

I used to suffer from acrophobia when I was much younger. However, ever since I have picked up photography, going to high places doesn’t scare me as much as it used to do in the past. My will to capture great views from high vantage points is stronger than my fear of heights. Often I just need to get accustomed to the height, so I just go up slowly and pause from time to time.

After a while, I get used to the height and I am not afraid of it. And when the view is great, I return with pictures like the one above.
