High flier.....!


Some of the things Aimee and I see when we walk down the coast can be tres fascinating , like yesterday for instance looking up and seeing someone flying above and keep going on up, up, up into the heavens, in fact when I downloaded the images the last one made me think of Pegasus flying a touch too near to the sun. It's called 'para-motor flying' and this short video shows that depending on where you do it, the views can be spectacular..it's a little too much 'awesomeness' pour moi, but it was fun to stand, both feet on the ground and watch (you might have to click on the last one to see him disappearing into the clouds). It's a little chilly in Perth today 23C and a few showers, perfect for catching up with posts I've missed, so see you on the blogsphere, have a good day.....!

  3. I like to look at them while being lying on a beach or on grass. Even this way, they give me vertigo!

  4. Wish I had the courage to do it! The closest I've come is a balloon ride and it was wonderful to be able to look the eagle in the eye! Terrific captures!

  6. We have done parasailing while towed by a boat. Doing it in free flight would be liberating.

  7. Admire the courage, as I am not sure whether I own that much. Always a hand full of air beneath. Please have a good Sunday.

  19. I was going to ask if you had ever done that, but I should have known better, 'cause you're smart like I am and like to stay grounded even if the rest of the world is high as a kite!
