I got this shot a few days ago while travelling through the US. When I got to the grand canyon I seen this section of rock that stuck out from the side wall and thought I needed a shot of me out there, so I set up my tripod and snapped a couple of shots. I was a little worried my camera might fall over because of the wind, then started thinking what if I blew over. End of photo op. LOL
Hope you like it

Oh wow, that's great. I REALLY wish I could get a good picture of me somewhere like that. I never really think about it and always end up not liking it. funny how photographers love to take pictures of everything but themselves.

Again, nice capture!

you must be having a heart of lion....not because you were standing there...coz you left your camera all alone there to struggle with the wind....

amazing shot though.....

Thanks for the comments, I wish I would have popped up the flash, but I was focusing more on not falling..LOL.

Ok, you've definately got "a pair."

As for the photo itself, just wondering how it might look in a portrait-oriented crop.

The point of rock would make a more powerful leading shape (IMO...)

People go over all the time, you were lucky this time! I don't think it's worth the photo to put yourself at risk.

The shot is spectacular. The view is fantastic though would still be not being you there.


Congrats

Thanks for the comments, I never thought of a vertical crop, I will have to try it.
I rock climb, so the height wasn't really a factor, it was the wind.
Thanks again,
Dave

ROFL...

And it's the fall that's never the problem, it's the sudden stop at the bottom...

:lol:

LOL ya I guess the fall would be pretty relaxing if it wasn't for the quick stop
