Dangling on the edge: Life of a daredevil photographer

I did a search for Kos Evans and turned up nothing , so here goes; Kos Evans is a sailing photographer famous for her daring mast head photography. Good artilce about her on CNN.com today. The pictures in the article are stunning and I recccomend going through the slideshow. Here is an excerpt from the article



Dangling from the top of a 20 meter mast while bouncing along the open waves would test even the most hardened sailor's stomach.

If the vertigo doesn't rattle you, the mast lurching at a 45 degree angle will. Then there's the real possibility the whole boat could capsize under the strain -- plunging you deep under water with it.

But for maritime photographer Kos Evans -- who pioneered the hazardous art of masthead photography and bagged some of sailing's greatest images in the process -- it's all part of the day-job.

The extraordinary pictures, taken from masts up to 10 storeys-high, capture sailors the size of ants scuttling around on sleek white decks, surrounded by churning ocean and enormous rippling sails.

If anyone out there still thinks that photography is not a legitimate art form, this pic should convert them.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
