Flight Over Bandon

The guy in the air took off from a cliff overlooking the town and using the ever present wind in the area he stayed up for a long time. I, of course, snapped, snapped and snapped.

  1. Spectacular, Faye. You have captured crisp clear colors. I especially like the red and yellow sail.
    Is the final picture going to end in an oops?

  6. What a flight! He must have felt free from all the cares of the everyday while he was navigating his sail. A truly zen exercise - just like taking photos.

  10. Faye, thanks for your nice comments. Getting everything figured out with the Beta Blog was very trying. Now I believe its done..
    I think the flower is in the Antherium (sp?) family. I don't see too many plants with green petals. That's what makes the Conservatory so interesting. There are many different types of plants.

  12. These is a great series, Faye.

    I wonder how he would do if he'd been in Bandon today with all of our wind?

    I wondered if you are thinking of neat high surf pictures. lol Nita

  14. Nita if I knew you had high waves I would certainly be thinking about them :)

    Ben, you couldn't get me up there for a million dollars! I have a real fear of heights.
