Talking about inspiring - this is a university buddy - very cool oke - he is now a doctor in Aus and a outdoors/adventure junky.

He got married recently and he and his (now) wife made this video from a vacation they had and for a bit of an insight into his life.

Getting a good looking girl that is not only cool but also can share in this adventure/action passion is truly amazing.

I am really glad for them.

Top 10 Beautiful Tree Tunnels Trees, The longest-living organisms on Earth, beautify and protect our environment by providing color, shelter, and shade.   They renew our air supply by soaking up carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
10. Cherry Blossom Tunnel, Germany Each spring, a peaceful street, located in the German city of Bonn, transforms into an enchanting cherry blossom tunnel. Photographer Marcel Bednarz captured this stunning sight of cherry blossoms in full bloom. He explained to me that there are actually two streets in Bonn where cherry trees are planted, but the one you see in the above picture is called Heerstraße.
As you may know, the average cherry blossom lasts only between 7 and 10 days, depending on weather conditions.
09. Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho, Brasil
 Number nine goes to Brazil’s green tunnel from Porto Alegre , Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho. According to a decree signed in 2006 by former mayor Joseph Fogaça, this beautiful street is part of the country’s historical, cultural, ecological and environmental heritage. 
There are more than one hundred towering Tipuana (Rosewood) trees along Rua Gonçalo de Carvalho.  The great shade trees stretch over three city blocks, which is a good thing for the city’s overall health.  Did you know that trees, properly planted around buildings, can reduce air conditioning demands by up to 30%?
08. Autumn Tree Tunnel, USA  
 Photographed in glorious autumn colors by Kevin McNeal, this tree tunnel is simply astonishing!  The picture was taken on the way up to Smuggler’s Notch, a Vermont state park.
 The eye-catching foliage starts changing its color in the northern region, in response to many environmental factors, and spreads south as the fall season advances.
07. Ginkgo Tree Tunnel, Japan
Gingko biloba is a highly venerated tree in Japanese culture. Six ginkgo trees survived the Hiroshima bombing, continuing to grow despite facing so many challenges, and are still alive today.  Therefore, the Japanese regard the gingko as “the bearer of hope”. It is also known as “the survivor” or “the living fossil.”  Around 65,000 ginkgoes grace Tokyo’s streets, gardens and parks today.  According to some people who visited Tokyo, the tunnel you see in the above picture is located in the outer garden of Meiji Shrine.
06. Yew Tree Tunnel, UK
 The medieval Aberglasney House features one of the most beautiful gardens in Wales, UK .
 They have been an inspiration to writers since 1470. The Yew Tunnel is a popular tourist attraction in this area.  Believe it or not, it took nine years of pruning to restore this unique archway.  “Years of neglect had left it unsafe and with a perilous future, as the once formally clipped structure had grown even higher than the top of the Mansion itself. It is so nice to see it looking invigorated and healthy again, I had every confidence that with careful restoration it would help its future longevity, but I have to confess that it did look drastic at the time,” declared Graham Rankin, one of Aberglasney’s directors.  The Yew Tunnel is thought to have been planted by the Dyer family of Aberglasney, during the 18th century.

05. The Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland
Tucked away in the county of Antrim, these beautiful beech trees are thought to be around 300 years old.  According to local records, James Stuart planted the 150 beech trees in the 18th century, to impress guests as they approached his splendid property, Gracehill House.Legend tells that the spirit of a maid, who lived in a neighboring mansion and died in mysterious circumstances hundreds of years ago, haunts the country road. “Grey Lady” silently floats along the road and quickly disappears as she reaches the last beech tree.
04. Bamboo Path, Japan
The Sagano Bamboo Forest is located in Arashiyama, a nationally-designated historic site. 
 The pathway you see in the above picture is 500m long, and runs through one of Japan’s most beautiful bamboo forests. No wonder the Agency for Cultural Affairs declared Arashiyama a “Place of Scenic Beauty”.  This forest is close to many famous temple and shrines, including the Adashino Nenbutsu-ji Temple.  The sound the wind makes, as it blows through the tall bamboo trees, has been voted by the Japanese authorities as one of 100 must-preserve sounds of Japan.
03. Tunnel of Love, Ukraine
The Ukrainian Tunnel of Love is actually a two-mile sector of private railway that serves a woodworking plant near Klevan, a small city located in western Ukraine. I read somewhere that couples pass through this romantic tunnel to make a wish.  The myth goes that, if their love is strong and pure, the wish will come true.  May all of your wishes come true, but watch out for the train! It runs three times a day through the leafy tunnel.
02. Jacarandas Walk, South Africa
 Over 10 million trees keep South Africa’s largest city green. According to several unofficial sources, Johannesburg is home to the world’s largest man-made forest.
 There are at least 49 species of Jacaranda, most of them native to South America (particularly in Uruguay, Brazil, Peru & Argentina), and the Caribbean basin. The tropical trees were imported to South Africa over one hundred years ago. October is the month when the flowers of thousands of Jacaranda trees are in full blossom.  This spectacular tree tunnel is located either in Johannesburg or Pretoria, the Jacaranda City where 70,000+ Jacarandas add vivid splashes of purple-blue to the urban landscape.
01. Wisteria Tunnel, Japan
As soon as the cherry blossom season ends, the gorgeous Wisteria flowers, that hang in grape-like clusters, take their turn on the Japanese floral calendar. The Fuji Matsuri, or Wisteria Festival, is celebrated each spring in Tokyo, Shizuoka, and Okazaki. The Ashikaga Flower Park is one of the best places to admire different varieties of wisteria, including double-petaled wisteria, giant wisteria and yellow, white, light pink or purple variants of wisteria.

Swordfish usually slam the prey sideways with their beak... stunning the fish, before they consume them... I have not seen a pic of one on the beak itself before...

I've been wondering how real that pic is... Maybe the floor is just off to the side there or something...

Of all the adventure sport (and insane adventure sport) people the 'free face' climbers makes me the most nervous.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why someone would scale a 800m cliff, sometimes dangling from 3 fingers without any ropes/harnesses.

I mean - if you are on a rope at least you can anchor yourself and rest a bit if need be.

:eek:

I like adventure stuff, but I get sweaty palms just thinking about these guys doing it with no safety ropes or nothing.

Imagine you are 500 meters up on a rock face and then you grab some 'bossie' that release something that make you go into a sneezing frenzy while hanging on with 3 fingers...

Judy,

You pic 9.jpg in Reply #436 reminds me of the poem:

 "High Flight"

 Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
 And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
 Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
 of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
 You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
 High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
 I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
 My eager craft through footless halls of air....

 Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
 I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
 Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
 And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
 The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
 - Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

If it is ice, then the colour is strange - there must be an interesting story there either way.

I think that the forward velocity of the chopper is greater that the down draft velocity of the rotors, thus the wake is just out of frame.

I'd have to go with xTzar's explanation. If that is a photoshop, it's just too good - the light, reflections, shadows and details are just too spot on.

He'd have to have been moving rather fast though - even given shortening of depth of field with a zoom lens, he's rather close to the water!

Good picture, great flying.

With a forward speed of up to about 306km per hour and a downwash of about 120 km per hour ( pilots - help!! long time since I used these numbers so they may be wrong ) the wash should be seen within three times the altitude, which would put the front of it in the frame.

Was a surfer... and paddleski rider, and body boarder, and rubber duck racer, and yachtie... and swimmer...
Dun the diving, water and sky, flew microlights, dun the kayak thing, even got the eskimo roll sussed...
Dun the horsie thing, dun the 4x4 thing...

dun the ice climbing thing, only one weekend, would love to do more...

What still to do... would love to train dogs to harness... you know I love those ice and dog pics...
Kite surfing, that is on the list still.
Wanna ride the Spice Road... and Mongolia calls! That road of bones...
few more things...

My problem is I cannot just touch on something and move on....I get intensely engrossed in it. Skydiving was the only exception...for reasons of time and money I had to walk away from it and it was HARD to accept.

I am SO SO stoked to have re-discovered surfing though....OMW it's so good!

You have to do it... I have dived with almost all of them... From the Whale Sharks to Hammerheads and Raggies and Whites... I was lucky though, just happened for me. :)

Seabee, you live close to the water, closest here is Valley of Waves at Sin City... I DON'T think so! ::)
I know about the dog thing, but who knows, one day, when a little more geriatric, maybe I'll need a team to trundle me around the farm... :)

If you write it down, caress the dream, stare at it and love it, it somehow always happens! WRITE it down!

Actually, not too difficult...  get to work WAY early and then browse my favorite sites quickly... like the Red Bull site, National Geographic, etc... somehow seeing pics like this just starts the day better!  I try post 10 a day... but I don't always get that right.

Damn Malibu

The pic of the cliff diver is amazing.
Must be at least 25meters.

Highest I've done is 17meters.
I'm itching to do a gainer (running forward and jump into a backflip) off a 12m cliff on a friends farm. ;D
Title: Re: Truly inspiring pics...
Post by: Malibu on October 18, 2013, 12:58:00 pm
I regularly jumped from the top of yacht masts into water... get it wrong and you have skin-sting for ages...

25 m just somehow seems so much higher... ::)

(ok, I'm chicken)  :)
Title: Re: Truly inspiring pics...
Post by: EssBee on October 18, 2013, 01:33:47 pm
" skin-sting"....I screwed up jumping off the North Beach Pier one day...did a front loop and landed chest first on the water....my chest was bruised!!!! AND...I had a wetsuit on!  :o

So....25m above the water...fok dit...rather you than me.

This is why I have not yet tried the gainer off the 12m jump.
I have done a head first dive off the 17m jump. Now that gets the juices flowing. :thumleft:
If you screw it up then you are in deep shit.

Its a 5km walk back to the car and another 30mins drive to the nearest tar road.


PS. I think the reason I don't have a problem jumping off high things is because I'm use to the height and I technically don't fall as far as other people. >:D :laughing4:

I have done tubing in Magoebaskloof.  Jumps ranging from 3 - 15m while going down the stream with a tube.
There is a 25m jump as well.  BUT still not sure about that one.
