They must have all jumped at the same time. Good timing on your part and a great capture.

Wow you must have had a Super Duper Telephot lens to get that all the way from the ground. Wink

Great picture.

What sort of person chucks themselves out of a plane, on their back, then takes shots of other loonies racing him to the ground? (shakes head in bewildered admiration!)

Fantastical shot Mike, great detail and colour.

(A friend of ours used to do this in the days of wind-up movie cameras and has a wonderful sequence which ends with him hitting the ground vertically. The final frame is the lens hitting the ground! 6 months later he was up jumping again, still filming and still wearing his steel braced corset - you are all mad Smile

LOL - you must have an incredible zoom lens to capture this detail from the ground! Or at least, that is where I'd be! Well I can't even believe you could get this sharpness in the air either. Nicely done.
