In the "boulder" example, both are correct. The "wind" example is correct. (You do need a comma after "Inside.") The "standing on the edge" example is not a complete sentence; there is no main verb in it. It's a phrase that modifies something, but we don't know what it's modifying. Something is or was standing on the edge of a cliff, but you don't tell us WHAT or WHO was standing there, or what that thing or person did. Alternatively, in the "standing" example, you could turn "standing" into a verb by starting the sentence with "I am standing on...." Then there is a subject ("I") and a main verb ("am standing") and you have a complete sentence, in the present progressive tense.
