Hang Gliding

Uploaded: June 14, 2005


For me it's fun, for most it's terrifying. (But look at how beautiful the view is with no floor obstructing your view.)

Taken in Nuevo Leon, Mexico near Monterrey. Set the camera on infinite focus and used a remote to trigger it. The flying was awesome that day as I hovered under the clouds and flew out over the lake.

Amazing shot Shane! Can't wait to see shots of Makapu'u, when you visit Hawaii! Makapu'u is a popular hangliding spot here on Oahu. I've been trying to take pictures of the gliders when they get low, but the speed makes it difficult! #343597
