Thanks, Dann! Like many of your photos, this was just one of those 'stopping on the side of the highway' things. There's a vineyard there, and I wondered if a photo would look like one of those French countryside shots. Then the parachutists suddenly started falling into view!

Ah, opportunity. I would say that most of my shots come that way ...

Absolutely amazing shot. Usually when I see something amazing like this I don't have the camera with me!

Thanks Chris! It was definitely a surprise opportunity (and only possible with the 12x + 4x zoom on the camera I'd just gotten.) It took learning the hard way after many missed photo opps to almost always have a camera with me. A little harder once I got a bigger camera than my little pocket Optio, but keeping one in my knapsack has just gotten to be a habit. Thanks!

thanks, guy! - you've really been digging through the oldies here. Nice to see it get some recognition after all this time!

More recognition, more digging - great photo!
