This was taken at Potomac Falls in the D C area, a popular climbing spot.

OOooo, I like them both. Good thing I don't suffer from vetigo. The second shot is a very interesting angle. Definetly Unusual.
Nice work.

Both are great shots. Looking down the face of that cliff kinda gives me the willies.

The second shot is very abstract and it takes a moment to figure out what it is. I am wondering if the white balance is off a bit in that shot. Although the lights look white, the rest of the image seems to have a slight orange cast. Maybe it is just the color of the furnishings in the atrium.

I'm going to be different. I love the first shot best. It's something I'd love to have the courage to do but fraid I'm a whimp. The hand not attached to the cliff adds to the drama of the shot.

Okay, I do have vertigo and these both had me feeling like I was falling.

I like the second shot best. Not sure why.
