These pictures were taken at Bratton Camp next to the Westbury White Horse. It is the site of an Iron Age Hillfort, very high above the Wiltshire countryside, a favourite place for paragliding enthusiasts.
Beautiful photography !!! LIKE Greetings Thanasis.
Thank you very much Thanasis.
Were you tempted? :)
The drop here looks gentle enough - the only thing that would bother me here is I am not used to that much traffic in the air :) I dont think there are this many paragliders in the whole of Ireleand - let alone all in one place at the same time :0)
adding a big YS to this one - fabulous series Rosa, You have really captured the esscence of a days flying
Thank you for coming back with the big YS Dean :-D
The only thing that I was tempted to do was take more photo's! I'm a bit too old for this now! I'm not good with heights but I love watching. It's a lot steeper on that side than it looks...I didn't go too near the edge!
If only I could roll back a few years and stone. Great series Rosa.
Nicely caught just taking off. Somebody has to take the photo and somebody has to do the gliding Rosa and they probably didn't have a camera so what else could you do.;o)
Go on KC, shed a few lb and have a go...I will take the pictures! Glad you like the series.
Precisely Ian ;o))
Wonderful frame & series, Rosa! Like
Best wishes, Marlene

Thank you Richard. I have never seen so many in one place!
Hello dear Renata, I was only thinking of you this week! So nice to see you back on Panoramio! Thank you for your visit :-D
very spectacular and wonderful view, like!
Many thanks Annelies. I am pleased you like it.
Lovely shot of that red wing and the sprawling countryside below and beyond! I still have a hankering to give this para-gliding a go. You too? There are lots of clubs. Second-hand parachute not that expensive, approx. £500 I've heard. Carried around on the back like a ruksack and light of course. The learning is the difficult bit - landing in cow-pats, trudging back up the hill.....
Best wishes, Brian.
After my two experiences on the Isle of Wight, I think my feet will stay firmly on the ground Brian...but I am impressed that you have a hankering to do it. They landed back on the hill, so don't worry about trudging back up ;-)) Just let me know and I will take the pictures ;o)
All the best, Rosa.
Thank you Chel. I really enjoyed watching them...just watching. Greetings, Rosa.
