Although this picture is not technically brilliant by any means, you've captured that rarest of moments, a climber in mid fall. I hope the person concerned did not suffer any ill consequences following this shot. Have a 5!

Thanks, the lighting wasn't very good at this moment. I've got a variety of other pictures of this moment but I thought this was the best out of the lot.

Chi's dead good at falling :D I might upload another 'Chi Falling' photo myself!

Thanks for your concerns, i got a little rope burn when I inverted but got back on a few minute later. But still did not get it sent

good effort anyway.

I think the one Chi had as his FB picture may have been better because he is highlighted against the white sky and framed between the trees and the rock. This one shows the length of the fall a bit better. Its good that you remembered to press the shutter, I've missed so many biking crashes because I've been too busy gawping to click.

Yeah I felt this one had more action in it then the Kung Fu one. I had it set on continuos so took hundreds of him falling and out of these this was the best one.
