Seriously… look at this! Isn’t it a fantastic photo?
So, what’s it, exactly?
The “Ripping shot of a gravity group doing the bolivian death road” in Bolivia! One of the many touristic/adventurous things to do while visiting this beautiful and unique country! Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for the amazing shot: it belongs to Gravity Bolivia (c) www.gravitybolivia.com, 2012, and I was lucky enough to get authorization to share it over here… Totally worthy, right?
The photo was taken with a cell phone (!) [HTC ONE X, using the HDR function]… a great stimulus to all of us, amateur photographers out there! 😮 Liked what you saw? I sure did… I’m still finding my adventurous side [I’m a mom of 3 little kiddos, remember?], but the hubby is totally sold by the idea of venturing through the death road, biking and bringing back wonderful photos for his beloved wife… I appreciate that. Will keep you all posted… Again, a BIG THANK YOU for letting me share this unique image… That’s why it’s so easy to fall in love with this country… 😮 And, for the curious ones out there, when in Bolivia, go check them out:

I can barely stay on a bike on a flat cycle path! What a wonderful ride for those that can 🙂
Agree, Gilly! Although I’m (still) too scared to try it, I do love seeing the pics people take from the path… they’re simply… fantastic! Thanks for checking it out! 😮
Too close to the edge! I would be scared to death standing there.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
I know, I know! That’s why it’s such a fantastic experience! And the mountains against the sky look gorgeous… someone made a comment about the photo saying that the ‘mountains and the sky looked like stormy sea waters…’ pretty unique… scary, and yet, so beautiful! Thank you for taking the time to come by and check it out! Much appreciated! 😮
