in the canyon series I was not the photographer... I was just enjoying the pleasure of the places we went, and I knew someone else on the group had that assignment :)

This is nothing for acrophobics!...THe second shot is pretty impressive, descending from such hight on a waterfall! I was always fascinated of this sport, involves a lots of work, the whole preparing, getting there (as the photos show, it is not always easy). Inspiring set!

I totally agree that it's dificult to make sports photos that might appeal to other crouds (like the nature and landscapes photographers)... and some of those are quite good (I can talk because, as i mentioned in a comment above I was not the photographer on this adventure). So it's partly the merit of the photographer and partly the fact the you have benn canyoning in truly beautiful places!

I agree with both Lindy and Patty.....this looks terrifying! But the shots are wonderful combinations of striking action shots and very beautiful nature shots. You don't often see those both done so well at the same time!

Even if I was the photographer (which I was not) I had to do everything because you only reach those places by using ropes and doing rappel all the way down!!
