Have a nice weekend

I must wonder who has the better view, you or the parachute man! What Ana amazing plAce for such a sail through the air, the lines of the mountains like veins and the town a tiny little conurbation below. The parachute lends some beautiful vibrancy and color to the view.
Thanks as always

Hello dear Silvio,
Something different in your gallery ; taken with good pov.
The portrait format fits well to your compo. Nice the small village midst of the wide landscape. The paraglyders adds life to the scenery.
TFS and best regards

This is a great shot of the hang glider above the village. The vertical format allows us to see the depth of the scene and how high the glider is above the valley. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness and DOF. You seem to have some dust on your sensor, it is showing up in the sky.

non dirmi che per strabiliarci hai pagato "il volo del calabrone"....
Gran bel colpo, due soggetti opposti, situati ai lati opposti e con fondali opposti. Ci vuole fortuna nel trovarsi al posto giusto nel momento giusto, ma anche molta abilità a gestire il momento e catturarlo al meglio.
aliabazari (16170) 2014-08-01 22:00
Questo colpo è molto bella e attraente. L'esposizione profondo e ben eseguito. Buona risoluzione. Grazie per la condivisione

A nice catch from the height over the Castelluccio valley, view of the flying paratrooper must be even greater joy.
Combined well with good contrast between subjects.

Un parapente coloré bienvenu pour remplir le ciel au dessus de ce très beau village. Bonne composition.
Tu as pas mal de taches de capteur dans le ciel

Paragliding is not a hobby that really appeals to me, but judging by your fine composition I imagine the view from up there is magnificent. A fine capture of this intrepid explorer hovering above the town. An image benefiting from excellent depth and lovely light and natural tones.
ourania (47120) 2014-08-02 6:20
un' immagine bellissima e rara, un altro modo di godere Castelluccio ed il magnifico scenario naturale in cui si trova. Hai usato lo spazio offerto dal quadro verticale superbamente e la vista che presenti ha grandissima profondita'. Mi piacciono molto i colori naturali, il contrasto ed il senso di gentile movimento del paraglide. Da questo punto di vista si ha l' impressione di volare lo stesso. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

A superb capture of the hangglider high above the beautiful valley and the pictureque village, It's a very striking composition, well cropped and well timed.
photoray (13981) 2014-08-02 7:12
Very attractive Castelluccio scene, with the hang glider floating above the green and grays of the mountains, and the ancient town dominating the hill top.
While I have too many fears of falling from heights, and would not hang glide, I would definitely enjoy sauntering here.
Thanks for sharing,

Ciao ami Silvio
Une vue splendide sur le village, le paysage qui est fantastique, belle prise du parapente dans le ciel bleu, très jolie
willperrett (11080) 2014-08-03 4:14
Gorgeous landscape, with that village sitting apparently in the middle of nowhere under those forbidding bare mountain slopes. And then of course we have the hang-glider, who adds a completely different element to the composition. But I see that dirt has returned to your sensor: fairly obvious splodges evident in the sky (quite easy to remove them using the Spot Healing Brush in Photoshop)...
abmdsudi (55132) 2014-08-03 8:44
Great way to enjoy the beautiful view down below with its enormous feel of depth with the stunning glider grabs attention as strong pointer. Great composition and clever ideas, with some nice tones and contrast. Excellent capture, Congrats

jemaflor (98771) 2014-08-03 23:35
Geat landscape with the village and interesting composition well balanced with this man on the air, well made.
Nicou (144264) 2014-08-04 2:24
Quelle vue le village tout en fond tout regroupé sur une petite colline et ce parapentiste qui survole le tout superbe ensemble et captage.
Bravo et amitié
macjake (69143) 2014-08-04 12:23
well this must be a new one for you, yes? I don't think i've ever seen you post a photo of this town with a man flying above it! haha
certainly a fun photo for everyone.
I still am amazed at how this town sits upon all the landscape surrounding it.
ChrisJ (115529) 2014-08-06 1:44
I was of 2 minds whether I should try tandem paragliding in Turkey as depicted here. I am sure it would be exhilarating. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the silhouetted paragliders. The pyramid shaped village clinging to the hill makes a good focal point. Tfs!
Didi (60588) 2014-08-06 11:08
Belle vue dominante sur ce village pyramidal
Un coin magnifique à visiter
Oups il y a une tâche sur le ciel, il est facilement possible de l'éliminer
serp2000 (44574) 2014-08-08 11:13
Thumbs up! Excellent combination of the nature, architecture and human activities. Good capture of the flight of sportsman with so impressive background. But I am surprised with this small town. Where do they take the water???
berek (50504) 2014-08-25 6:19
a beautiful capture of this beautiful site with strange birds in the sky! A good framing and nice image quality. I really enjoyed the cute town that appears below.
Have a nice weekend.

wunderschöne Landschaft, der Tandemschirm in der Luft ist das Highlight!
