I guess these 3 solo jumpers were flying high and sky high in confidence! Not for them the safety of a tandem jump that my daughter was experiencing at the same time. Used this one as I managed to get 3 in shot as they jumped from a small plane. I liked their body positions in the air too

Actually prefer another I`ve found so in with this one instead. Now looking again I think I`ll stick with the first one and a new title !  :uglystupid2: The last one seems so dark on here and I cannot modify it and upload another as I have submitted my maximum 3 per day to the site. never realised that limit was in place until now!  ???

Nicely in line Paul. My dear daddy, an RAF pilot, told me never to jump out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane ;) Advice I have rigidly followed. In the 90s a friend died in a tandem jump, and I need no further persuading.

In the meantime, I took a shot of home sweet home from a little way up the other day:

Had to be done!

Nice one of the Red arrows Simple. Reminds me of one of my proudest moments when I shot the Red arrows coming over the runners on the Tyne Bridge covering the Great North Run for a sports company doing runner shots. Had to go up in a massive cherry picker which swayed in the wind as I perched atop praying I`d be ready when they came swooping in as I only had time for a quick burst of shots. To my relief it went well. Unfortunately re-printed as it was throughout the nationals I saw neither extra cash nor credits as I was on the companies time. Great experience though and did a less enigmatic shot for a South Shields event over the town centre. Great fun but you`d never get me in a cherry picker again.
