Pictures Don't Usually Make Me Freak

But I was setting up my next painting, using Flickr, as usual, for random lines and shapes to push the blank paper into somewhere new, when I found this. It's not this photo that's the freak-out - it's the two that follow in the photostream, and the photographer's narration.

The subject must be either insane or have absolutely no sense of his own mortality. I could not believe what I was seeing. I'm glad I was not there to see it in person - my imagination is way too vivid.

Back to the painting...

Oh my. That makes my palms sweat and my heart palpitate. There's fearless and then there's reckless.

Holy Cow! I can't imagine having seen that in person.

Example #1 of why I'm a sea-level land-lubber. Yikes!

I must be missing something...the guy stupid enough to jump rocks veryhighup?
I don't see anything else except some excellent photography!
