Wow, great shot! - shiltz
Nice pic! Good to see Black Hill make the Gallery! - shortman
Caption should read "if anybody else ever climbs on Victorian Granite these
days and do they have equally attentive belayers?" - Pat
The photographer was Kai's Mum, Mandy Robertson. - Karl Bromelow
Sending a kid up without a helmet is a bit irresponsible. - tnd
I promise you Kai wasn't "sent" up. - Karl Bromelow
Love the photo. Helmet would have ruined it. - Stugang
Great shot! - pmonks
Mandy doesn't have an account on here but, on her behalf, thanks for
the kind comments. Much appreciated. - Karl Bromelow
I like it a lot.
Good photographic balance and symmetry, including the areas in soft focus, which serve to accentuate the crystal clear clarity of subject, and also adds (for me), a sense of dynamic to the action portrayed within a grander scale of scenery. It certainly draws me in as a viewer...
Thanks for submitting it.
An afterthought... Unintentional I know, but the photo angle almost cuts out seeing the rope if the foot sequence had've been reversed, which would make the climber look like they were free-soloing!
Mandy just read your comments Rod (M9....hope you don't mind first
names. I find all this pseudonym stuff a bit silly). She was pleased with the
your appraisal, commenting how you obviously "got it". Cheers, Karl.

Two stars for short granite slabs, one for it being Black Hill and an extra star for Kai doing granite the way God intended it to be done... in socks.

I did post myself in response to the last comment above but decided to let the 10
year old come back himself. Kai says, "I wasn't using my knees and elbows, I was
using my hands and feet. What's his problem anyway?"
That's you told.

This is a link to the sun actually colliding with planet earth a few years ago.
How the heck did we all survive do you reckon, Snagtug?
