All I can think is how much his finers must be hurting at that point. After getting over that thought it's a spectacular photograph.
Amazing, stunning, is just two words that come to my mind looking at this photo. The mountains in the background gives such depth to the photo as well as the "what seems to be crazy antics" by the climber captured at the right moment.
This is an impressive image, both for the exotic landscape and the daring climbing skills being demonstrated, but I have a reservation about it, which is that it is staged for dramatic effect. That aspect of it reminds me of, for instance, the scene in the Tom Cruise movie Ghost Protocol of him rappelling on the glass walls of the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai.
The footgear that Alex Honnold is wearing is interesting. The toes of the shoes look like the abdomen of a wasp.
Great shot. The details of the rock are perfect and very clear. The man, with all his muscles on detail too, makes this foto a very good one. And the calm that we can see on water, makes the contrast on the foto. Very beatiful foto and well taken. I'm suprise with the fotos that I have seen here. I work on a travel agency and I never expect to see so wonders in these last days. I know and I suggest to the others, voyages to severals places arond the world but I never expect to see that exists "another" world. I'm glad to be a part in here!
Wow, Wow, Wow, looks like every muscle is employed to keep hanging on! What a photograph. Love the details of the rock and the smoothness of the water below.
One can see the the leg,arm, and torso muscle power being used in this amazing rock climb, to say nothing of the awesome camera shot. Was it a 'let go'? Seems so,but we dont really know. Fantastic. j.e.s.
