Plage du Golfe Bleu - 3

The reason I came down to this particular beach was to photograph the paragliders landing. You may recall I posted some photographs a while back, under the heading Come Fly with Me - those were taken from one of the roads above. Do come back tomorrow and the next day to see a close-up of a landing.

In this photograph you can see some guys packing up their parachutes ready for the long hike back to the van that will take them way, way up to Mont Agel for another flight. Getting to the beach is a hike. You park near to the railway station of Roquebrune-cap-Martin, you walk down a long flight of steps and then under the railway lines and alongside what looks like it was once a river until you get to the beach. And those parachutes, once packed up into rucksacks, look very heavy to me.


  1. I've never had the nerve!

  2. belle photo. quand les oiseaux atterrissent, bravo et bon weekend

  3. Pas trop froid dans le sud, nous c'est glacé même laes petites routes ce matin
    Bande de veinards (je suis trop jaloux)

  4. When I was a child I KNEW I could fly. It was the most wonderful feeling (I must have had very vivid dreams). It would be worth it to haul the heavy parachute if I could get that feeling again.

  5. Its very beautiful seen in this heights.
