Photo and caption by Erlo Brown
The sun is setting quickly over the cold Atlantic Ocean. I wanted to photograph myself jump off the cliff with the golden sky in the background. I set my camera up on a tripod and readied one strobe on the cliff. I asked a friend to press the button as I made the leap. It took about five attempts before I was satisfied with the photograph. The cold water left me shivering, but the photo is worth it.
