This weekend Lizzy was away in the Field but I got to spend one day at the Riverside Quarry before getting a bad cold. I drove up with Leah who sent her project, Vertigo 13a.

I just got a bigger memory card and going to start shooting in raw to make post production easier.

Lizzy has a similar opinion about the blur. I wanted to add focus on the climber but overdid it a little. Thanks for the comments!
