This is a photo from a skydiving boogie in March of 2011. We shoved a raft out of the back of a skyvan with three young ladies in it and four gentlemen holding on to the sides to keep it stable. We left the plane at around 14 thousand feet and I was able to stay with them down to about 7 thousand feet and then the raft just became to floaty and I was falling to fast. By 6 thousand feet they all left it and deployed their parachutes and the raft floated down and landed on the drop zone as planned. This picture was published in three different magazines in 2011. It's also been sold and printed several more times. To this day this is one of my favorite memories in skydiving!

PS. Yes, this is a REAL shot, it's not a composite, and yes I took it with a camera strapped to my head! :)
