These are the unforgiving cliffs of Sydney, Australia's Diamond Bay Reserve. The same Diamond Bay Reserve where citizens were warned to stop visiting back in April because of how dangerous the conditions there are.
Unsurprisingly, they didn't. And a photographer just died there last week because of it. It seems selfie deaths are still not a thing of the past.
But, in a twist ending, the poor girl's death has sparked a huge surge in visitors to the reserve.
Editor's Tip: When creating a portrait, the background behind the subject can either enhance the shot or detract from the subject. To ensure the background in your portraits does the former and not the latter, invest in a good photography background. Photography backgrounds are easy to set up, and if you purchase a vinyl background, they're extremely easy to clean and care for. There are tons of designs and styles you can choose from, so you can customize the look of your portraits to suit your aesthetic.
On the morning of August 17th, a woman fell to her death after trying to take a photograph on these cliffs in Australia. Since the reserve was highly populated at the time, social media was flooded with photos of the incident and the following search party.
In the last half of August, only more people started visited the site.
And the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods are not happy about it.

In fact, the residents weren't happy about it back in April when the original warnings were issued. There are lots of signs in the area warning residents of the perils of the cliffs.
But, despite the woman's death and the warnings in the area, tourists were back taking photos on the cliffs just a few hours later.
