Steep stair, winding stair

How thoughtful and kind of Sauron to have the Mordor Orks pop out and put a handrail on the steep, winding stair up the Shelob's pigstie of a hangout. One wouldn't have thought they'd be so considerate! Seriously ... this is a tortuous path up a cliff face at Second Valley, South Australia; and if the rusting rail were not there, there'd be no shortage of casualties! The day was not particularly hot, but the light was so bright, it shriveled your irises. The camera struggled to cope, and the shot was enhanced later at the software level to get the most out of it.
