Write about walking across the bridge in the picture.
This sounds simple, doesn't it? But I want you to include as much extra detail as you can.
How would you feel?
What could you see?
How cold might it be?
Why are you there?
How did you get up there?
How high is the bridge?
What is on the other side?
To help you think about what to write, look at this webcam
The webcam shows the area where the picture was taken and lets you look at the bridge and the scenery around it. It is very interesting to see the building nearby and how the mountains look different, depending on how much snow there is. It also makes it easier to imagine being there because the webcam is a real-life moving image.
Hint: You don't need to know the name of the mountain or how high it really is, you mainly need to think about what it would feel like to be there and what you might be able to see.
