These...

are...

insane!

Just received these four pictures via second son. They HAVE to be fakes, right? Nobody could be this nuts, right? Note the copyright by Victor Lucas 2006. That's why Howard is convinced they are REAL. Professional photographers don't cheat. Click on them to make them scary big. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

Update: Here's a link to more photos and a narrative of the adventure. Turns out the pictures are quite real. (My best girl can hardly look at them.) They were taken at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. One of the riders wrote, "
Locals warned us of the upward drafts that blow people off the cliffs - and sure enough the wind was picking up over night. We got an early start, and even the extra strong Italian coffee I brewed couldn't clear our heads. Even though the conditions and weather were less than good, this was our one and only chance to ride the cliffs, so we did. It was a rad feeling to ride along the exposed edges and jump over some of the gaps. As time went on we started to feel more and more comfortable and daring..."

In a situation like this what use is the helmet? Maybe as a floatation device.

Totally fake, but spooked me nonetheless... Wow.

And for me in that situation, the helmet would be for me to puke in. ;o)

After going to Victor Lucas's site, which I link to above, and watching his portfolio of outdoor sports photography, Howard is now convinced that these photos are for real. Crazy, nutso, insane. But real.

There are no shadows at all. There should be some shadow unless these pics have been photoshopped. I read the page where they have described the route. More details are given about the pub crawl they did. A caper like that would merit more description surely, instead of details of the pubs they went to. Also, apparently these people are IRISH...
