Well done. The angle is so dramatic. I've seen two mates fall from the same place so can appreciate it well! I really like the chalk dust... hang on... I was there the same day as you - I remember the chalkbags made from cut-off plastic bottles!

Would have liked to have seen something like an inflateable on the water for scale but still a darn good image.

Nolo - Nope, belting hot day and the water was warm enough for a swim!

Fantastic shot. Great isolation. I really feel I can see him falling, not just stuck in mid-air...
Great (and good luck) detail in the chalk dust.
Nice one buddy.
How was Menorca?
