Photographer's Note

Hi, my TE friends!

Flying its one of the most antique desires of man, and now its converted in a passion, by this recreational and competitive free-flying sport called Paragliding.
Paragliding its a distant relative of parachuting, and it has a story of constant equipment improvement and a growner number of paragliding pilots (also called paragliders) since 1980s.
Some wings on this sport are very beautiful (like this one you can see on this shot), and make perfect and wonderful color contrast with the surrounding landscape.


Here, you can see my good friend Miguel, on his wonderful wing, overflying Praia das Bicas (which you can see on the background, near Aldeia do Meco), 38kms far from Lisbon and 61kms far from Sintra.
This picture its for him, for his courage and sports good taste!

In another future photo, Ill bring to you some information about Praia das Bicas.
My next photos will be about this impressive sport and about Praia das Bicas and its marvellous landscapes.

Enjoy it!


Rosa
