Do You Hang Glide?

Mam Tor, Peak District, England, UK

In a recent visit to the Peak District, we saw a Hang Glider gliding around Mam Tor peak.

I would like to try parasailing where you glide over water and being pulled by a boat. This one seems too scary for me to try.

Good luck on your adventure. Let us know how it went.

at least it doesn't look like there are many trees to get caught in!
I like how the arch of the glider mimics the top of the hill.

great capture. I am way to scared to do that stuff. But I like to see it.

The closest I've come is a balloon flight and that was fantastic. Don't know it I'm brave enough for this, but it does look like fun. Terrific captures, Alex! Hope all is going well! Have a great weekend!

You have to pull my leg to get me to this challenge! I will just be the spectator!

Great shots! I get to see lots of hang gliders here in Telluride but never been lucky enough to photograph them. I'd love to try hang gliding someday for sure!

That looks like an exhilerating experience.

Nope, I don't hang glide but I DO enjoy watching. Happy Smiley

Very nice photo. Looks like fun but I think I'll just watch from the ground. Thank you. ;-)
