One very brave man - wow - I liked those.

Re: Salon 249 Transportation.

Thanks Garry for running the Salon and selecting my image. Taken in Gibraltar, worth the trip to see the Barbary Macaques. Will try to think of a topic tomorrow.

It had been on my bucket list for years. I bought the GoPro just for the jump. Here’s the complete video: https://youtu.be/7jN6bR05Nlk

Absolutely brilliant Pat. Your smile all the way down shows just how much you enjoyed it. The GoPro did you proud with some stunning images.

Fully agree, Ron


I couldn't do that jump. Not for me. The Go-Pro did a fantastic job.
