In this gorgeous vertical panorama captured by photographer Nick Braun, the sun sets on the horizon as experienced highliner Ari Delashmutt carefully makes his way across a slackline rigged along the cliff face of Monkey Face Rock. This 350-foot natural pillar located in Oregon's Smith Rock State Park is named for its loose resemblance to — you guessed it — the face of a monkey (pictured more distinctly in the photo on the right).
