Made my heart pound watching this.
Looking straight up they first appeared as tiny specks diving at 40 mph, three parachutists connected together, at the last minute they separate close to the ground and land…what a show!
…helps that I had the best view for this one :)
!!!!Go Skyhawks!!!

    One of the goals of photography is to show SYMMETRY in a shot.
    The viewer “pats themsevles on the back” for seeing the Maple Leaf at bottom left and then the Maple Leaf in the chutes. Then after patting themselves on the back then its time to say WELL DONE to the photographer for capturing all this in a tiny frame – especially of fast spinning parachutists. Cool deep blue sky, great spirals of smoke and a RED, WHITE AND BLUE to be proud of.

  • hit the nail right on the head, I was so happy these photos turned out, thanks so much for the well educated words and compliment my friend.You really know what your talking about very refreshing.

    To those who think this shot LOOKS EASY, these parachutists come whizzing down at such a rate and you blink and they are on the ground. It takes split second timing to compose the shot especially at top right and bottom left of frame. Its not like you can tell the parachutists “Over a bit so I can get the flag in frame, cheers” – nope. JOB WELL DONE.
