Excellent, well-timed shot - looks like "Crouching Tiger", remade in Yorkshire. I think the dull sky actually helps the climber stand out, although a bit more light on the facial expression would be nice. Its one of those shots that causes you to stop and look, and provokes questions, such as "why the apparently extreme swing", "what happened next?" or "has he fallen from the sky and missed the landing strip?". As said, Excellent!

Cheers for the compliments all. I wasn't gonna bother posting this pic initially, cos I thought it would get ripped apart for being too wacky, but I'm glad I did now! Like the 'crouching tiger' comment - think I might just add that to the caption!

another staged shot... Why can't exciting pics be real and not staged? Hey, watch me do a one armer on flying buttress direct in my trainers... COOL! Looks to me like he's just kicked off the wall into that position.
