Floof & Sap Art Images presents:
3 Steps To Nowhere
A photograph of mine...
A photoshop of Espi's...
And a complete reliance on a picture being worth a thousand words for the sake of avoiding another long drawn-out introduction:
(10 steps short of a Pantera song, but I don't think it would suit the scenery very well anyway.)

First off, I love bright days whether they are in summer or winter (summer especially since I like warmth but if there is snow then winter also). Also, I love the picture and it's photoshopped one. The photoshopped one actually made me just sit there staring for a few seconds.. it's like some sort of surreal heavenly place or something. It also reminded me of the album art for Supertramp's Even in the Quietest Moments. http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B000068FXX.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
Did you take that?
Yes. It's at Colesbukta on Spitsbergen, which was originally a whaling station, and later used by the Russians as a port for the mining settlement at nearby Grumant and for exploratory coal drilling. It has been abandoned since 1988. You can find a bit more info here.
I've also had some problems with trying to take photos in very bright light recently. The more manual control the camera gives you, and the bigger the range of settings it is capable of, the better. And of course you can use filters too.
Now... myk, I doubt stairs like those could lead to a house behind the photographer. Ain't likely for a house to be sunken (front stairs leading up).
I've seen quite a few. In fact, I'm kind of living in one (just a driveway leads to the door, though, not stairs). That's probably comes from living in Washington, though, where the ground is so hilly that people just build houses into hillsides and whatnot.
