    What a view they must have ~ looks fun … as long as they don’t get too close to those treetops! ~ great capture Roy :)

  • No, they stay well out to sea Susie. It’s touted as the highest paraglide in the Southern Hemisphere ! Thank you for your kind comment.

    Fantastic Catch Roy Congratulations! Very striking colours.

    Can’t believe I actually did this once over the Gulf of Siam all by myself. Coming down was more difficult than I thought I actually got my feet wet.
