In this 1 minute episode, I edit a flat photo of a sign into a vibrant punchy photo. This photo taken at the Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois was a precursor to the amazing spectacle we would soon see. It added tot the reality that there are no safety nets and one wrong move would mean certain disaster. The leading lines and the controlled bokeh in this tells a quick story of the excitement we found while climbing near the high cliffs.
