I wanted to make it look like I was paragliding as well. Unfortunately I wasn't, this was taken from a mountain path 1600m up, just above the paragliders were jumping off the mountain and enjoying the updrafts on this lovely day. Anyway I still had to work for this shot, as it was a long slog uphill!


great my 3rd star and one by each of my cameras!!! If anyone gets a chance to do a tandem paraglide it is well worth it. Such a great feeling. Thanks for all the comments.

Thats stunning. What a rush that must be, both for the photographer and the parachuter.

Nice shot. Using the "blueing" of the haze adds depth a nice sense of distance/depth to your shot really makes for some great impact.
