Sky Diving – Conquering the Sky

It goes without saying: people have always tried to conquer the sky and after numerous experiments with artificial wings and fancy flying apparatus finally we have managed to make the dream of flying in the sky real. Today, it is not such a big deal for a human to fly. There are many chances to do that. You can get on the plane and travel into any place of the Earth with such speed and at such height that will even make birds jealous. However, it is only sky diving that is capable to make a person feel entirely a risky yet very true experience of flying in the sky.

It is the sky diving that suits best the statement about conquering the sky, because conquering is usually not about sitting in a comfortable Business class seat of a modern plane, sipping Martini and enjoying the view outside the illuminator. Sky diving is absolutely different – it is a real and ultimate challenge to one’s physical and psychological strength. A sky diver, jumping out of the plane, has only seconds to feel and enjoy the free fall, and it is only the parachute and his destiny that are capable to save his life and avoid deadly collision with the rapidly approaching surface of the Planet. However, those seconds are full of emotions, sky divers are looking for. In order to see those emotions, you have to look into the eyes of sky divers at those short moments of flying in the sky. However, in order to do that you will have to jump as well. Alternatively, you can save your adrenaline and simple have a look at the gallery of sky diving photographs, published below …

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
