Skydiving for The Holiday

Hello All! Been lost in the hills of New England for the last week or so. It's been a bit since I posted so figured I would show you what I've been shooting.
The threat of Hurricane G and now Hannah have kept me asking around for info, but the lack of reception has kept me off my phone. I actually lost my phone for three days. What a blessing.
Big once a year skydiving party to end the summer season here called for my photography skills. I know, end of season? End of summer? From Florida that just seems crazy. Hurricane season is just going, it couldn't be hotter and there is no end in sight to the humidity.
And that was more then enough reason to get away for a bit. Plus getting a chance to jump with long time friends, new friends and shoot some pictures was all I needed to say yes to this event.
Just an incredible time, weather and people here at Skydive New England. The owners Fred and Mikey couldn't have been nicer and really set me up to do a great job documenting the weekends events and jumping.
This PRIVATE airport with it's own landing strip, campground and facilities including a cafe are in the middle of nowhere and far from just about everyone. You either land on the airport or PRAY you land in a soft tree!
Warm sunny days, a slight chill at 13,500 and long sleeve evenings made for some comfortable living this past week in our wooded campground.
Still on the road at this point. Off to another adventure and should have more pics soon.
Take a looksee below for a sample of one of my favorite photo locations at 120 MPH.
