Location: Outer Hebrides, Scotland

On one of our trips in the Outer Hebrides this July we had nearly perfect conditions for flying nearly every day. We kept going from one anchorage to the next, hiking up a few minutes and hucking off one insane spot after another, but this one was really over the top. In this photo near the north end of Barra, pilot Bruce Marks is flying Gavin's Niviuk Arctik 2 out over the ocean as Gavin and I were flying directly over him. To get paragliding shots it's easier for me to fly tandem rather than solo so I can focus on getting the composure right while Gavin focuses on keeping us aloft. This was a memorable flight!
