Probably to save weight, steel is usually more expensive.

OMFG, such a sexy panorama.

Wasn't it a little late in the evening to be up there? I think the photo was taken from atop the Lion Rock. No vehicular road goes up there, I don't think... The photographer must have hiked back down in the dark?
