This is me. I composed, then focused the camera, set the exposure and had a remote thumb
(volunteer) to push the shutter. There is a long drop on the other side.
I have heard that there is a fence to prevent arch walkers. I did this because I saw a similar image and wondered what the experience would be. Now, I know. It is a wonderful location and many have taken images from more or less the same tripod holes.

Very convenient to have a 'remote thumb'. :) Thanks for sharing!
