It's so important to know which shoots were your best and to go back and revisit them sometimes. You never know what gems you may have missed or new techniques you have to make an image match the original vision you had when you made the frame.
Sending the Edge ..
Jumping the 50 at Edge Falls has always felt like something I had to do. Jumping off of perfectly fine ground for no good reason other than just feeling like you had to is obviously not the greatest idea.
But I've always had a strange relationship with height.
I am one the hand in love with climbing as high as I can and seeing things from very high vantage points. That's probably why I like flying my drone.
On the other hand I have always had a strange urge to jump off of whatever I'm on. When I was sitting on top of Mesa Arch in the Moab desert I felt like at any moment I was actually going to jump. (Your a 1,000+ feet up at that point)
The feeling/urge would scare me.
There's actually a name for this feeling. It's called "high place phenomenon". (What a bummer of a name. Kind of lame.) Psychologists say that some people feel the need to lean out over high places or actually jump as way of not buckling under to fear. I think that's me. I fear jumping and so I feel like I need to confront that fear by actually jumping.
There are of course inherent risks in jumping from high places but there are associated risks with waking up in the morning and everything else. Just the act of having friends or getting married may statistically be the most dangerous thing you can do when you realize that 79% of all murders are committed by someone the victom already knows! (Stay away from people you know! Its too risky!)
So maybe jumping off a cliff isn't so crazy after all.
It's like the guy who jumped off a 50 story building said when he had fallen 40 stories, "So far, so good."
