Paragliding by the southern cost of Sweden.

This is something I always wanted to try but never had the chance to do it, paragliding. It looks so calm and peaceful, just floating around in mid air with the birds.

These shoots were taken at Ale stenar at the southern part of Sweden. The terrain there is perfect for paragliders that want to take off from land and then just float on the airstream pushed upwards by the cliff sloping down towards the sea.

The air rushes in from the sea and when it hits the cliff wall it raises and creates the perfect up wind that the paragliders could hang on to and glide through the sky for hours.

Alone in the sky.

The perfect human seagull.
