Paragliding over Queenstown, New Zealand

That's me with the gray beard posing for a pic being taken by a 35mm point & shoot suspended at the end of the pole on the right.

I have so many questions... Where did you take off from? Or did you jump from a plane? Where did you land?(You are over nothing but city.) How long did it last? How many tries to get this one perfect shot? Didn't the wind make it very difficult to take the shot? Why were you wearing a helmet(because if anything happened, you'd be just as dead one way or the other.) How much did it cost? Are you crazy? (If you hadn't explained how the picture was taken, I would have guessed it was a gag photo taken in front of a screen.) Great shot!

That is outstanding! I have to respect NZ and Queenstown in particular as they have embraced tourism and extreme activity and really made it a core part of the town and a success. Great ingenuity to think and execute this shot....he he, from the end of a pole, brilliant. And good for you in trying this adventure.....not sure I could be so brave....
