David (my brother) sent me this sequence of photos, along with some accompanying text (from Hans van de Vorst, the photographer who took the photos). They show a photographer leaping from a solitary rock in the Grand Canyon to the wall of the canyon.

You can see the photos on Flickr, together with the accompanying text.

  1. Showtime!
  2. Point Of No Return
  3. Cliffhanger
  4. Slip Slidin‘ Away

As you might expect, there’s some controversy over whether or not these are the real deal. I’m not expert at looking for evidence of manipulation in photographs, so I’m just going to enjoy them for what they are: a very cool series of events.
