Taken at 13,000ft late last night long after sunset over Northern Ireland. The temp had fallen to -30 at 13,000 but made for a stunning night decent.

Night jumping is one of the most hazardous tasks in skydiving and only undertaken by very experienced skydivers.

ISO 400 F4 15mm 1/60sec Flash. Frozen!!!!!!

Thanks as always for your interest.

Thanks Alan,

Perts caught his foot on the door as he exited the plane ripping off his bootie. The booties gives even airflow over the feet and helps forward movement that's why the formation is tumbling like a bag a of washing.

Thanks for the interest.

I don't know how you manage to do photography in those temperatures while hurtling towards the ground.
Completely mad but you do get some amazing shots.

Your not kidding! jumping out of a plane at anytime isn't exactly safe, let alone at night... Lol...

Nice work Mike.

10 out of 10, mate. Stunning pic.
Air to air photography with aeroplanes is hard enough, but photographing meat bombing at night is something else!
