The wall (Mountain Quarry)
Australia

This was by far my most ambitious project. The wall is over 50 meters high - the picture was taken from about 30 meters above the ground. It was quite difficult with all the gear, rope, belay device, tripod, camera, remote shutter and only two hands to compose this image. I actually had to hold the tripod horizontally against the rock with one hand and operate the camera with the other, at the same time making sure that the rope is at different position at each photo, so that neither the rope, nor I don't get in a way, so the background could be correctly stitched without any unwanted subjects in the final image. Seemed so easy when I first thought about it - not so easy when you hanging 30 meters above the ground. Hope you like it!

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
