A few kilometres north of where I live is a parachute school. For a price, anyone can learn to jump out of a plane...with a parachute.
Imagine free falling a few hundred feet before your parachute opened. Sounds like
But the jumpers seemed to like it just fine.
Is it my imagination that the second jumper turned around so we couldn't see the fear on his face?
Oh! The fear was on MY face.
Parachutist #3 was having a ton of fun. REALLY he was! He must have found some updrafts because he was up a long. long time before he swooped safely down.

Fantastic coloring... but I'll pass on the jump.
wow, i love the first image. i would have to try parachuting if it was that close and i was watching them all the time
I would be scared out of my mind. Shhhhhh . . . this is just between you and me. Don't tell the other bloggers. I have a reputation to uphold.
Love the first photo, the colours are amazing. My brother got to jump with a parachute with an assistant (two people together) for this 60th birthday. I don't think I will follow his example. Too chicken :-).
Looks pretty,BUT,not for me.I like both feet firmly planted on the ground.
I would probably die of fright on the way down! No way would I do that. Nice pics though.
Very colorful, pretty images, but I'll stay on the ground and watch from here. ;)
Great pics. What a nice thing to do, but I don't think it's for me. I'd be too scared too.
Oh the colors against the sky are gorgeous! It kind of looks fun from down here...but I'm not sure I'd like it as much from up there :D
These are beautiful shots of the parachutists, and it does look like they are having fun (except possibly #2), but I think I'll keep both feet on the ground and just enjoy the pictures.
fantastic pics... i don't know if I have have the balls to jump out of a plane. I have been in one while jumpers bailed but to actually bail... i don't think so!!!!
Great shots! Must be nice to fly like this :) LG Tina
These are really great pictures!
Woo! Lovely images! I'd enjoy one of those or...not! I'm afraid of heights so I'll just admire your photos!
Some super photos of the mentally unstable and/or downright insane! If we were supposed to jump out of planes or from other high places, we would have evolved with chute packs in our backs. Or the earth would be made of Nerf!
I don't think I could do it:@)
I'll watch safely from the ground, too. My stomach is somersaulting just looking at these! =>
The pictures are great, but I like to feel the ground under my feet. The only time you'll see me in the air is in a plane and even then, I DON'T sit at the window (my wife can have that spot without any question).
Thanks for sharing.

Parachute is the perfect P word. Wonderful pictures.
I'm chicken about jumping out of airplanes but I think I'd try anything but this.
Great P word,and glorious photo's.
Oh, my goodness! . . . I would have fear on my face, too. LOL What super pictures!
I'm with you as far as being a chicken. Being drugged and thrown overboard is the only way I'd leave a plane that was above the ground! You got some great photos though!
I am too chicken now but would not have been when young..yeah right. But my oldest daughter did a tandem jump right after college and loved it...I think there is a pic somewhere on my Pics & Pieces blog...it is too expensive to do it often.
Oh my...what wonderful shots of the parachutes. Beautiful!
I don't think I could do this either. They would exciting to watch though.
I would love to try this once but I wouldn't want to do it over water.
Wow! Such a colorful adventure!
Fantastic images... But I too, like you am probably too chicken!!!
Have a fabulous day:)
My husband is a former pilot and he & his buddies always used to say "why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?"
I think I might handle being attached to a hang glider who was in control...but no way jumping with a chute.
Just looking at the pictures makes my stomach swoop! I don't think I'll be jumping out of any planes!
Great pictures, and I'd love to watch and photograph this, but you couldn't pay me enough to do that!
Great shots with wonderful color!
I'm chicken too. :)
Oh, I reaaaally would like to jump out of a plane... (yes, with a parachute)... vertigo be damned! It's on the bucket list. If Bush Sr can do a jump at 80, I still have a few years...
I don't think I can ever try this. Great captures.
There is just something fundamentally wrong about jumping out of a perfectly good airplane! Fun post!
Great shots! and a fun read :)
That looks so inviting - almost;-)
Remember...no guts, no glory! Terrific photos of someone having a great time. Someone with guts, that is!
great photo 1 & 3, the first time I ever saw closeup that they have those "holes"
Count me in the "frugal" club as well! I'm sure this must be fun, but I think there is just something wrong about jumping out of an airplane. :)
Great colorful shots. I like my feet firmly on the ground tho.
Bravely flying over land and sea! Awesome!
I would love to do that, except that I have bad knees. Otherwise, it looks like great fun to me!
Just the photos make me cringe! I'm such a chicken.....
Wouldn't want to do it myself (the closest I've ever gotten was parasailing), but I do love watching them float up there.
Nobody could pay me enough money to do that. But the photos look very cool, and I'm sure the parachuters are having fun.
There is a community airport next to the neighborhood I grew up in. We used to watch the parachutist jump from the plane. Some landed on our roof tops. They funny to watch. You could hear them whooping it up on a still day!~Ames
I would want to try it, but I know I would chicken out!
Heights and me...not too friendly.
I love the colorful pictures you shared here and you're funny story along with it.
A perfect visit for the letter "P".
Thanks for linking.
I'd be too chicken to jump out of a plane and rely on my parachute to save my life! Even if you never try it, you still get a great view of all those who do try! Those are quite some color parachutes too :)
