…not me for sure!! no way!! A breathtaking sight of tandem paragliders 2000 metres up in the Tatra mountain range on the borders of Poland and Slovakia.. near the ski resort of Zacapane
What nerve it must take and can’t imagine a more breathtaking location !! A first time for me over 2000m.. my knees are still knocking from some of the vertiginous views on the amazing narrow ridge walks…

Cheers and thanks so much for looking

    Coupla Crazies if you ask me Maggie…awesome capture:o)

  • teeheee -they did rather look it to my untrained as they swooped over the cable car wires.. but bet they knew what they were doing really – otherwise they’d need a passport to get back from the neighbouring country …

    Wow, what a lovely view. I bet it looks stunning from where that daredevil is at :)

  • my heart would be exploding if i was up there… it was scary enough on the narrow ridges there! but if you’re keen on extreme sports its certainly the right place to be!
    thanks heaps for your lovely visit!

    Great capture Maggie and what a view. Great sense of height.

  • thanks gary… yes a mere pic doesnt do it justice at all … definitely one for that ‘bucket list’ of unmissable places..
