We encounter situations with some element of danger every once in a while when we are in the outdoors. The determination of whether a situation is dangerous or not can be a somewhat personal conclusion sometimes.
I myself experience a sense of danger when I witness activities that involve heights and steep drop-offs. I can sense a danger in the situations below even though there are safety features that are built into the activity.In the picture below, just seeing a person near the edge of a steep drop-off makes me feel that there there is an element of danger in the situation. Perhaps the person involved is not as concerned as I am.White water rafting though rapids is an activity that looks very dangerous to me. The adrenaline junkies who take part in this sport may disagree. The heron in the picture below does not seem to care.Sometimes, when you do things that are dangerous, and when you put yourself at risk, you end up needing services like the one below where other people are also forced to put themselves in danger.
Sometimes dangerous situations are explicitly called out, especially if they are not that obvious. Sometimes the warnings are needed simply to prevent people from doing something foolhardy in spite of an obvious risk.Here is another example of the kind of danger you could face when you live near a river.People differ in their perception of danger, and they also react differently to what might be considered a dangerous situation. In many cases there will even be disagreement about whether something is dangerous or not.
