There are hundreds more skies to be seen over on Skywatch Friday.

Great shot, I bet the water was cold but I see he was protected.

Thumbelina said...

Oh that is so clever. Well captured!

Kitty said...

Nice shot! I take it wetsuits are must in your part of Scotland? :)

The second photo in my post was taken at Rough Castle Roman Fort, just outside Falkirk. I was there on a university field trip and ended up taking more photos of the trees than archaeological features!

Linda said...

The first time my kids saw all the wetsuit-clad harbour wall jumpers at Hopeman they were soooo jealous. 'Mum, can we get a wetsuit too? And live here?'

Good combo: acrobat in the sky.

Great action shot and such a different SWF contribution - well done!

He got quite the lift there; lots of space between he and the cliff.

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

Wonderful shot and great timing!

VioletSky said...

Quite the daredevil jumper.

RockstarJen said...

Nice! And if you open up the larger version, you can really see the light reflecting off the water. And some water droplets in the air. Very cool.

Sally in WA said...

Great photo. I'm not sure I'd be the person jumping into the water, but somebody sure was having fun!

Prospero said...

Adam is flying (are Papillons the prettiest dogs, or what!)

Slight bias showing.

mountain.mama said...

Oh I like this picture, but wasn't the water freezing cold? Apparently I'm not the only one wondering about it.

Jo said...

Excellent and unique shot for SkyWatch. Well done!

Jenny said...

Although I enjoy swimming, I don't really fancy jumping off the harbour, Belly Flop! springs to mind!

bowledover said...

Man in harmony with the elements I think. He would not have jumped so high unless he was enjoying himself.

Full body wetsuit? Hope the surf was worth it!

Fun! :) I used to love jumping off cliffs but not so much anymore. :)

Thomgib said...

That wet suit kept me warm at 30 metres in the red sea, diving from a beach in Jeddah KSA several years ago. I have the photos somewhere to prove it!!!
