Not sure - I'll have to try that... the rope definitely pulled me, but I'm not sure how it affected him.


I dropped the hook by accident at one point, so he dived in and I connected the rope as he passed :D Don't try that at home!

Beautiful early morning light over the Provence - the Shuttle landing at LeTube airbase (grass is still wet from dew...)

Thank you - though I got them pretty much by lucky accident - the light was 'just right' somehow.

Wow, the last one is so terrific with that Wetness
We can feel the recent Shower of rains nearby the field. Stunning

It gave me the envy to play around Istres also, and to tweak the weather. Always a blast that advanced weather

The perfect rows of trees / hedges along the roads really make those shots seem real!

What scenery is that? I want to see how it was done.

Ah, interesting, I should have know this, probably did at some point in time.
There is so much of this type of enhancement that can be done to our existing scenery.

@wlbragg: it was talked about in the last 6 - 8 months, IIRC... i thought you were part of that discussion? it was mainly centered around England roadways and how they have these hedge rows along them...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
