My favorite BASE picture

Recommended Posts

All,

I cleaned some posts out of this thread by request of the photographer and poster.

In order to do so, I also had to remove the following photos:

Here was one taken of me in the west...

Above the object was thick fog, below in the valley was clear...

A surreal jump for sure

You really like that jump ;-) I remember jumping that particular span for the first time. I did it in the pouring rain, and had a heck of a time climbing out, as I couldn't find any kind of real trail. It was heck of a lot of fun though. :-) I should get back there this summer.

First jump...

Jump was executed from a 360' freestander at sunset. PCA.

A professional photographer came along to capture my jump along with a few others. Big thanks to him for the incredible shot. I love the contrast of the jumper all in black suspended in front of the bright landscape below, the illuminated shoe soles, the blurred background yet crisply-outlined jumper. And of course, the bright red canopy exploding off the back of the jumper!!!

Also thanks to katzurki, who talked me into starting BASE. This jump was done in November 2005. A year-and-a-half later and still injury free.
