Photographer's Note

The La Quebrada Cliff Divers are a group of professional high divers, based in Acapulco, Mexico. They perform daily shows for the public, which involve diving 35 metres (125 ft) from the cliffs of La Quebrada into the sea below. The depth of water in the "Gulch" can vary from 6 to 16 feet depending on the waves, with an average depth of 12 feet. Timing is crucial for the divers. During the night, they often hold torches while diving.
There were many people viewing this exhibition when we were there. There were three large cruise ships in the port , and I assume most of the viewers were tourists from those ships. I took about 50 pictures while there, but will only present four. This is a shot of two of the divers climbing to reach the level where they will dive into the ocean. Not my cup of tea, but interesting to watch.
