Did he make that move? I always go right hand up.

And how did you get that angle? Tied off to a tree behind? It seems from further back than just leaning back off the wall.

If I must... No, I did not make the move. My wingspan is about 1/2" short. A good example of how it shouldn't be done.

Yeah, I always do it the way Jules Cho is shown in that other photo ... but I can't tell you how many times I tried it this way before I learned my lesson. Hey, at least you got a GREAT photo out of it!

I got the angle by leaning hard backwards on rappel with a 16mm lens. I was practically horizontal, holding the rope with one hand and a camera with another. Thinking about it, if you attached something to your shoes (stilts?), you could get really interesting angles.
