Beach on a blustery day

What does this fellow have in mind, anyway? The photo is much less alarming when you realize that the telephoto lens foreshortens the view and makes it seem that he is much closer to the edge of Lake Michigan than he really is. The day was sunny but cold and blustery, and the man almost immediately turned and retraced his steps.
