Well, the title says it all for this one. Sometimes its well worth it to go the extra mile to get that shot. I was walking around the hills of Porto, trying to find unique pov's of the city and its beautiful bridge. A lot of photos of the bridge and city are taken from this side of the river, but to the left, looking the other direction. Fewer people venture out to this side.

As I was walking the hills, i passed by an area that said "Do Not Enter" due to risk of falling from the unstable earth on the hillsides. I guess the earth has been crumbling and is unstable when heavy weight is placed on it.

Of course I had to climb the fence and get a little dirty. It seemed safe to me. Hopefully this is a view not many other people or tourists have in their gallery, i'm not sure.

I'll put a couple more in the WS, as i could easily post 10 photos from this spot :) I liked how its very rustic here, with the plant life and weeds growing uncontrollably, and the abandoned looking home at the base of the hill where the ground is crumbling down ontop of it. I got pricked alot by thorns to get this shot, but its a small price to pay.

As I was looking for WS photos, I realised I may want to post them as main photos in the future, therefore I'll post just one WS.

And yes, I tried to get into that abandoned house as well, but it was too hard.

Hope you like this one
