Worthing Birdman Competition 2014

By NDODS    
Good day to you all at ePz

Thank you for taking the time out to visit, view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday.

Todays images were captured whilst out and and about. This weekend is the annual Birdman competition, and I managed to captured a couple of images for your perusal which I hope you will like.

I hope that you have a great day today. The weather promises to be somewhat inclement so I may or may not get down in order to watch the serious contenders in tomorrows second day of the Birdman.

Regards as always Nathan

Taken so well as asequence, Nathan. Nicely timed. There seems to have been a little accident at the start and not much of a flight, either.

Good he landed in the water. Looks like a fun day had by all. You fired off the shots very fast to see this.

Catching his rather rapid descent to the depths.......very well done, Nathan.
I'd probably have been laughing so much I'd have had camera shake showing in any I took.

Hmmm, Welcome to Worthing. People like it so much that they jump off the pier to get away from it...
Terrific fun, the sort of thing that I miss living inland.

These images contain all the Wright stuff Nathan, they show English eccentricity at its best. All these wierd and wacky traditional pursuits like bog snorkelling, cheese rolling, shin kicking, morris dancing etc could only take place on our shores!GrinGrinGrinhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c8PUVIKgI4
