Photographer's Note

Not a great shot I know, but there are reasons.

Olu Deniz beach is the landing point for tandem paragliders who take off from the top of Babadag, which at something over 6000 feet altitude claims to be the highest commercial paraglider launch site in the world.
Walking along the seafront can be entertaining as you watch them looping round to set up their landing. This guy got it very wrong! I had been facing the other direction completely - towards where they are supposed to land. I heard somebody yelling a warning behind me and turned just in time to see people scattering and this scene. The object in the bottom right corner is an advertising hoarding which he just managed to miss. He actually landed in the middle of a picnic area approximately 100 yards from where he should have landed.
