Paragliding in South Africa

Paragliding in South Africa

I recently got back from South Africa where I have been finishing off my paragliding licence. It took a while due to some bad weather, but I got there in the end. My intention is to eventually start taking photographs from my glider but at the moment I am still not confident enough to let go of the controls and handle a camera at the same time. Instead I attached a small camera to my helmet and set it to shoot automatically as I flew around. Here are a few shots taken with my helmet-cam at a gorgeous flying site in Wilderness.

Launch!

What a view!

What a place to fly!
