Let's make one thing clear straightaway. This is not me!

These guys carry a heavy rucsac all the way to the summit of Monte Baldo on the cable car, then carry those packs along the ridge, lay out their 'chutes, wait for the right conditions and then jump off.

Is it me or is this behaviour a little strange??

Gee ! They do this off Falkland hill where I live but it is a little pimple compared to this. You have really captured the sense of space and freedom, however you couldn't pay me to do this.

Not when you possibly capture their last moments on earth. Great perspective that we don't usually see from these eagle wannabes.

Wicked shot Dave. Must be quite a rush I guess, although I don't really understand why anyone would risk life and limb to do this, or why they would jump out of a perfectly good plane either come to that. I will stick to the excitement of reading a good thriller or watching a scary film.

I've done some daft things in my time, but draw the line at this. I kind of wish I had the courage, but am equally glad my balls are where they're supposed to be, rather than in my throat. Ace capture, Dave.
