Default Parasailing off Mount Martha

Hi all,

O the way back from my Sunday morning ride down to Flinders I found a few guys Paragliding of the cliffs at Mount Martha, a few Km's from where I live, so I wiped home grabbed my DA*300 and went back for a few shots. I thought it would be easy but the clouds and sunlight behind were a bit of a drama until a bit of blue sky opened up

Oops Paragliding!!

You wouldn't catch me doing this. I'll just watch from the sidelines.

Nice captures Simon. You blokes sure do like thrill adventures.

I went to an ultra light fly in about a month ago in Sothern, NH and will post some pictures soon.

Interesting view. Paragliding is something that I'd like to try someday, but I suspect that when it came time to launch myself off a cliff, I'd be afraid to take that fateful step!

Very nice pictures! Looks like fun - for someone else. Now I love photographing them.
