Free as a bird


I was sitting on the balcony of our apartment in Phuket, dozing over the corrections to my new novel, when I was awoken from my reverie by what sounded like a large lawnmower flying overhead. Looking up, the beast turned out to be a powered paraglider (aka paramotor) skimming the roof and the treetops. Grabbing the camera, I fired off a few shots as the pilot swished around and then descended into the valley over the local village and out over Kamala bay. Looks like fun!
