Eyes Wide Shut

By skydivemike  
Fergie with his Tandem Passanger taken this morning over the Co L/Derry countryside at app 12,000ft. As you can see from the shot his passanger kept her eyes closed all the way from exit until she landad.She said she enjoyed it so that all that matters.

Thanks for looking and as always your comments and time are very much appreciated and never taken for granted.

Best viewed large if you can.

Happy Easter to everyone on EPZ.

Fergie is checking the altitude on his altimiter and is compensating with his right hand (like a paddle) to keep him and his passanger on heading.

Thanks for the question.
