A Different Way to View a Rappel
Spent the weekend in two of Death Valley's many canyons. Our second adventure of the trip was Inconceivable Canyon which was in an area where all the canyons were named after something in the movie Princess Bride. Clever. ("It's inconceivable!" was a line from the film.) Here's a different approach to photographing someone on a rappel. This particular one was the longest of the canyon, 280 feet. I set up a tripod (yes, fool that I am, I lugged a tripod through the canyon) and shot a sequence of both Jerri and Kevin rappelling down the second half of the run, and then I combined them all in Photoshop.
