We sat at the bottom of the stairs for about half an hour, so I tried to make use of every gap in between people :P In this photo the 'phantom' is a tourist, but I also have pictures with no people. I was quite proud ^^

This picture has a very special atmosphere - and the name you gave it suits its mystery well. It reminds me of the Phantom of the Opera, and I can't help but ask myself: is she the phantom, an apparition, a ghost of an old building, or is the phantom the one watching her, looking up to her light from the darkness below..?

Wow great shot.

I went there some years ago. If I remember rightly, the incline was so gentle that the steps were really long, like really annoyingly long that you couldn't get a proper walking gate going. Nonetheless, beautiful carvings and arhitecture.
