I found a few more to add. Remember how close the edge was when I was taking these photos? Too close for my comfort but you did good getting up close to the edge.

How small of a shelf were you standing on? Facing backwards too?
You're soooooooooo brave!

I took that photo with my feet firmly planted on the ground and was NO where near an edge. I got spooked and backed off. It was an outcropping from a level footpath. trillium was right at the edge taking her photos. I have a photo with her in it a few inches from the edge crouched to take photos. Made ny heart skip a few beats.

Some of those other photos did that to me when I viewed them.

It was worse being there watching your friend inches from the edge... I was like... ok... let's start heading down... I'd really like to get some photos from below...
I was fine until that basket the guy was in dropped. After that, it was all over for me.

Heart in stomach then ha? Scary...........
It's those what if moments that get you right back into thinking about your safety though. A protection mode I'm sure.

Aw heck, I figured the rescue folks were close enough if I fell off I gotta get back there one of these days, on a cloudier day, or earlier. The bright light left too much glare in alot of the pix I took.

The lighting screwed up every photo I took. I was hoping you'd do better than me. Bummer you ended up with the same glare and intense light and dark that I got.
