They Don't See the Crack

In 2004 I brought my (French) partner on trip around Ireland in a bid to show off our beautiful country. I took many photos along the way, but one series in particular has become widely viewed here on Pixie.

The shots I took at the cliffs of Moher have shocked thousands of people as they captured the people literally risking their lives unnecessarily:

"Cliffs of Moher - Darwin Awards Candidate"

The description reads "Where is this woman going!?!"

A few minutes later, a man walked right out to the ledge and stood there seemingly unaware of the monster crack less than a meter away under his feet.

Imagine my surprise then when tonight I noticed that another Pixie user had uploaded the very same photo taken 6 years later...

OMG - The ledge is GONE!!!!!!!

Quintessential Cliffs of Moher

Thanks to gallftree for upload this new photo entitled "Quintessential Cliffs of Moher".

I wonder if anyone was standing on that ledge when it finally fell...

I found an news article talking about the collapse of the ledge: http://www.independent.ie/national-news/daredevil-ledge-collapses-into-ocean-2288091.html

Great photos, scary to think that it could have collapsed anytime someone was on it :0
