Are the lovers dare-devils or possibly suicidal? Is this dance something that really happened or is it a scene from a dream? Robert has made several significant changes from his earlier image Summit. The figures are smaller and farther from the viewer, making them seem more vulnerable atop this dangerous precipice. The woman is placed with her back to the cliff, making her clearly the one in danger. The woman now wears a bright red dress instead of jeans, which increases the sense of displacement. The more formal the dancers appear, the more we feel they should be somewhere else, in a public space with other dancers. The horizon is low, emphasizing the verticality of the figures and the cliff, while the crescent-shaped shadows under the waves give a sense of motion to the water, adding to the dizzying sensation.
