Photo-a-Day (Friday, 8th July, 2011)
Photo: David Barker (Nikon D3000 70-300mm Sigma lens 1/250s at f/5.6)
Looks like alaska airlines, outside washroom, toilet.
Nice one David we have a guy who gets up with one of these over Winstanley,
by the way the 250s got a good blur on the prop
What a nice shot and very well exposed. How come I always miss things like this? Have to keep my eyes open wide!
But how do they get off the ground with these paragliding machines, do they leap off something or do a running jump or something else?
Having never seen anyone taking off on one I don't know, but am curious.
they do a running jump cyril ....
Oh, thanks for that Jay, always wondered, hope it's a lot easier than trying to launch a kite.
you been sat with budgies all day to get that photo
Lovely pic...but when did you have that lovely blue sky ??
fab pic :)
Thank You for your comments,Jean the photo was taken on the 7th July a clear evening here in Aspull ,Wigan.
The pilot was waving to one of the residents in fact he circled round again.
