a visual journey
Follow along with us as adventurers take to the skies for the first time on a tandem, learn valuable paragliding skills or even catch a glimpse of pilots just goofing around!
My friend Andrei (another local paragliding instructor) gave me a call yesterday asking if I could help him out by coaching his student in to land. There was rain at my house but it looked possible across the valley at Mt Woodside, so I said of course! The first picture is the view out of my car window at the landing zone when we arrived but fate smiled down, the sun came out and Alex got his flight! You can't let a little rain stop you if you live in BC...
After spending all day at take-off helping T & K get their flights in, I was rewarded with a flight down in the smooth evening air. I managed to grab a still shot of sharing the sky with Kirstie on her sign-off flight as I waved my go pro around but missed getting Tyler & Lee as they launched on tandem a few moments later.
