Caption

We jumped out of L-410 plane together with my friend Dmitry Mishin at the altitude of 4000 meters. It required about 500 meters for us to reach terminal velocity and to set proper position relative to the Sun, and then I started to turn slowly to the left and to nod my head (with GoPro camera on my helmet) down at each 90 degrees. This procedure required about 10-12 seconds, we approached the ground more and more, so finally I got rather singificant parallax on my pictures, but Photoshop helped me to fix it :)

Then we broke off, pulled at 1100 meters and in a few minutes landed safely :)
