“LEARNING TO FLY” Rainer Eder (Austria) Ibergeregg Chli Schijen, Switzerland
I was shooting for Mammut, the famous swiss company. The weather wasn't very good this day. After a couple of hours shooting, a huge thunderstorm came on us and we had to stop everything. We came back after a while and what a surprise! the rock was dry and the view over the mountains was perfect. I asked Babsi (Barbara Bacher) to jump on the rope and with the combination of the beautiful landscape in the background I made this shot possible.
