Flying High in St Ives

 Turning ---
 The power in his hands -
 With the help of Wind --- Such wonderful to see the Setting Sun from up here.
 Turning to land
 Landed ,,,,,
 Unharnessing  --

 Time for one more flight - I think.
 And Around we go again
 Wind dropping
 Coming in to land
Here I come.

All taken from the Balcony of our Apartment - with my 300mm lens and Nikon D90.

I'm VERY jealous of the 300mm lens!!

Two jumps in one afternoon? Did he repack the chute on the spot, or use a different one? It looks the same, but I imagine that it could just as well be two identical parachutes.

Did you get a picture of the sunset using this method. This looks like a lot of fun, but I'm not sure I would be up to it.

Gorgeous... That would be so much fun ---but I'd be right where you were---on the side taking photos!!!! ha

Cezar and Léia said...

It must have been so much fun!
The colour contrast is also great here!
God bless you!

You shouldn't have put in that last line - I thought it was you up their flying!
