Photographer's Note

Hi, my TE friends!

Flying it’s one of the most antique desires of man, and now it’s converted in a passion, by this recreational and competitive free-flying sport called Paragliding.
Paragliding it’s 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 1980’s.
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 it’s for him, for his courage and sports good taste!

In another future photo, I’ll 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!
