Another stunt from the air show, part of the Lecco festival the previous weekend.
It seemed appropriate to try and find an Antonioni title following his death yesterday, this seemed like the most appropriate, both for image and the man.

Don't tell me that you have taken up extreme sports , Richard. I hope you are not contemplating any bungee jumps. This one really does have a sense of adventure, with the brightness of the parachute,and th smoke against the terrifying mountainside. regards kevin

very beautiful shot with the colourful parachute in contrast with the rocky background ... I like it very much!

Hi Richard. I like both this shot and the previous one you posted from the air show, but this one takes first prize because of the brilliant contrast between the vivid colours of the paraglider and the more subdued colours of the background. Well composed and technically excellent too. I am amazed that an air show would he beld in such a mountainous region. Cheers . . . David
PS: L'Avventura is an excellent title for this (Beyond the Clouds would have been another possibility)
