-Crazy or Professional-

When i first saw these pictures on a website, i was thinking that the person
who edited these pictures was really professional as it seen real.
But, after i read the post futher, it freak me deep.
It's real!
The following photographs were taken by
photographer Hans van de Vorst at the Grand Canyon, Arizona.
This guy, another photographer
standing on this solitary rock in the Grand Canyon.
After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon
he packed his things and prepared himself for the jump.
Then, he jumped on his thong sandals.The canyon's depth is 900 meters here.
But the adjacent rock is higher, so he tried to land lower,
which is quite steep and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.
What surprised me is......
He has a camera, a tripod and also a plastic bag,
all on his shoulder or in his left hand.
He had only one hand available to grab the rock.
He lands low on this flip flops both his right hand and right foot slips away...
He pushes his body against the rock.
He waits for a few seconds, throws his stuff on the rock,
climbs and walks away.
Luckily, he manages to back home in one piece.
I was impressed by his spirit for his job which not many people could have.
That's why i wish to share it.
