F/Alphabe-Thursday

Hang gliding in Pickering - last year

F is for FLYING

No, not me!  But I do enjoy watching other people do it. I have a fear of heights.

I haven't been posting to Alphabe-Thursday because my husband has been in the hospital and finding photos for this meme was way too challenging. But now that he's out, I'm b-a-c-k!

Coming in for a landing

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

great in-flight photos of the non-feathered kind; not something I'd fancy doing either...

Lowell said...

I will take their pictures, too. And yours are just excellent. But I'll never understand people who do this sort of thing! :) Never!

Never tried it, but it does look fun, great photos.

hope your husband is much better. Not much fun to be in the hospital. Great shots of this hang glider. Better to see one, than to be one. LOL

I think it would be fun. Great shots. MB

Perhaps your husband and you are flying high? Yes, sky diving looks like fun, but I can only do it vicariously.

Stephanie said...

Fabulous captures!

Rajesh said...

Fantastic images.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Maybe at one time in my life I may have been game but not now.

TexWisGirl said...

i'd like to do that! especially a tandem flight where i could trust someone else to know what they were doing. :)

Linda W. said...

Nice photos, but I agree with you - not for me!

Lisa Gordon said...

Something I would definitely love to try.
I think. :-)

Gliding is something that I would adore! Cool shots!

Stewart M said...

Nice pictures - but it's the Fs in the fear of falling that keep me from having a go at something like this!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Piggybacking seems the safe way to try it—I would love to, someday!

Michelle said...

It does look interesting, but I wouldn't do it either! lol

Gail Dixon said...

Looks like a blast, but I'm perfectly fine on the sidelines. :)

Randy said...

myfluffybunnies said...

Sorry to hear about your husband. Glad he's better!

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

not for me either, but fun to photograph - great shots!

Kathy said...

I just can't say anything other than fabulous! Just trying to keep with the theme.

Pam Beers. said...

First of all, how is your husband doing? Sorry to hear he was in hospital.

Second of all, as usual, your photos are stunning. You have such a special gift.

fredamans said...

I love that you can see her smiling face in the last shot.

Pat Tillett said...

Not my cup of tea, but I do like watching them. Glad your husband is out and sorry that he was in...

Sue said...

I just love these. That first one looked like a big old dragonfly.

Wouldn't want my kids and/or husband doing it, though. Once I went parasailing and that is the extent of my bravery.

;)

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

Hope yr husband is 100%, and you can go flying with him.

Melody Harrison said...

For a split second,I was like "wow the girl"! I thought it was you. I have fear of height either. It does look like a lot fun but, I don't see myself into that thing. lol Fantastic shot!

Viki said...

Yikes! I have enough trouble flying in an airplane. I couldn't imagine soaring on a glider, ha!

edenhills said...

So glad your hubby is home! Glad you're back with Alphabe-Thursday. I don't think I'd be able to do that hang gliding thing either, but I will be flying in four days.

Jenny said...

Floating and gliding...letting all the problems of the world drift away.

Or so they seem to me.

Perhaps they are just fraught with more problems...such as wind speed and then have even more to worry about.

So glad to hear your husband is out of the hospital.

How frightening that must have been for you all.

Thanks for linking.

And hugs and healing to your husband.
