Leap of Faith

By gossyboy
This is yours truly making the leap of faith from Adam to Eve.

These are huge rocks found on the top of Tryfan in Snowdonia. The rocks make the mountain stand to just over the 3000 ft threashold by just a couple of feet. So to truly say you have climbed to the top of the mountain you must step across the gap between the rocks.

Not advised in wet or very windy weather, imagine jumping from and to uneven platforms about the twice the size of dinner chairs, with a drop to one side of about 200 feet and you'll understand why only the brave manage to acheive their goal.

Oh you are so over dramatic. Taken in your local park by your good lady. If the parky see's you on top of the war memorial again you'll get banned...

Well I would love to say that I set the camera up on a convenient rock and managed to jump just as the camera timer clicked, but I can't. My youngest lad Jacob took it for me. It's a kind of one chance shot, especially if you fall!
Gossy in action!!! Good shot.
