Some Parachute Action

This weekend saw the annual Netley Marsh Steam Rally, which is held about a mile away from me. They've had brilliant weather this year, and they had a fly past from the Red Arrows on Friday (which I missed 'cause I was at work ).

What they've had each day over the weekend is a parachute display by an Army team (the Tigers - Princess of Wales Regiment I think). Saturday's display only involved three parachutists, but today we were treated to a display by no less than 7 members of the team. I didn't use the Bigma, but managed to get these shots using my 50-200mm and 1.4 teleconverter. Hope you like them:

The plane - zoom in and you can see the guys who were to jump.

They were quite a way up, and had split into two separate groups, so I followed this group forming a stack:

The final one, showing them tethered together to form one big parachute !

Thanks for looking

I hope you had a fun day - number three for me - quite artistic.

Re: Some Parachute Action

Thank you for the kind comment Barr1e - I like number three best too!

What I forgot to mention was that I didn't actually go to the show - I was treated to this display from the 'comfort' of my own back garden ! How lucky was that!
