The road between Queenstown and Cardrona and Queenstown climbs steeply up the Crown Range and on the way up there are great views back towards Queenstown as well as towards The Remarkables Range. One of the spots on the way up is also popular with people launching themselves into the air for yet another Queenstown adrenalin hit.

Hi Ian, Well captured. The bright colours of the canopies stand out well on the earthy rocky backdrop. The split 2/3 sky and 1/3 mountain works well. TFS. Murray

Splendid mountain massive with the relief of the rocks.
Course are the two glider the really eye catcher up side the mountains.
Soft colors and pleasant for look at.
Very well captured and nice composed.
Nice done, TFS.

What a magnificent place to be paragliding - awesome! Imagine seeing the mountain range from their prospective.
Beautifully captured, great sky.
Thanks for sharing

A good feeling of freedom with this shot, especially with the red paragliding on the top, well visible. I think he is doing the interest of the photo, well above the range.
