Parachuting with mountains in background.Parachute Landing Parachuting, Chamonix, FranceParachute in Flight Luckily, “work” today is in a very pleasant environment. Beautiful sunny weather with a slight breeze. Plenty of colorful parachutes constantly landing, and a background of Mont Blanc. On the PA system they are playing Dire Straits, Steely Dan, and Chuck Berry, among others. 

I spent a couple of hours shooting away, eating lunch, and generally enjoying myself while working on my tan. After I shot enough (about 4 rolls--the motor drive on the T-90 is a help) in the same light, I felt I should wait until afternoon for a different light on Mont Blanc. (If the clouds don’t come in first.)…

The light never got quite the way I wanted it to, but I took a few more pix  before the day’s events ended at 5.
