Woah, that looks high & scary. & slightly stupid. Well you wouldn't catch me up there. Smile

Why didn't you give us some details? I like to read about what went into the making of a shot, personally.

Oppss,

Sorry davey,

This shot was taken when these guys were disembarking from an oil rig in Angra bay in Brazil.
The shot basically made itís self, I kind of got lucky being in the right place at the right time.
The back ground was there already made for me and although it looks like blur, itís actually misty which made the shot.
These guys are swinging from what is know as a Billy pough, a rope basket which is connected to a crane hook, you jump on, hold on for grim death and hope that you have a good crane operator in the driving seat.
The rig itís self is approximately 140 feet above sea level, add about another 80 feet for the crane boom.
Hope this gives you a better idea of the story line.
