Red Bull Cliff Diving Boston 2012

Mad, Phineas and I had a fun Saturday watching cliff diving from Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, 80 feet above the ocean. It’s 2.5 times the height of the highest olympic dive (which is 33 feet) — the divers hit the water at around 60mph, and have to enter feet first to avoid injury (one competitor still had to pull out of the final due to injury). The crowd was huge, around 45,000 people. Photos are all CC-BY-SA 3.0; the bottom photo was post-processed by Mad from one of the continuous-burst sequences I shot:
