The wave

Under strong winds, I tangled myself to the climbing rope I always carry with while traveling, and got close to the edge of the cliff using a locking rapel system. Once I reached the edge of the cliff, I had a clear view over the sea, and a kittiwake colony just under my feet. I spent a lot of time in this position, in order to show the dance between kittiwakes and the ocean, and how elegant are these birds, even under the toughest conditions.
