I love the shadow!

Without the shadow I thought his left foot was still on the rock. The shadow confirms it wasn't and adds that extra dimension.

Didn't he stuff it up on this go, or is that just a myth? Agree with Jon, a truly iconic shot.

Thanks for your comment. It's a long time ago now but, yes, on one of the attempts he did 'stuff' it up, missed the pocket and fell into the gully but with an amazing agility he pushed himself off the gully walls going down from side to side and emerging unhurt. One of the most impressive things I've ever seen. He then had another go and did it straight away but I can't remember exactly which go this particular photo came from.
