G'day all

Ever been near a skydiving venue and seen & heard the plane taking off every 1/2-hour or so for the climb into the sky?  It zig-zags overhead until it reaches its 9000 ft [sometimes 12,000ft] and then all these "silly buggers" jump out :)   Here's some images from a recent day's jumping

Camera= Panasonic FZ-200; "S" mode @ 1/1600s x F5,6 to F8; ISO-200; lens from 300mm to 625mm [film camera equiv]

1- The moment of launch ~ yes 9000ft above the camera [heavily cropped]

3- coming down in tandem


4- another tandem jumper
