Extreme Sports +Beautiful Landscapes

A few clips from flying in Switzerland the last two weeks, plus some old ones.. First shot is from Trond Teigen (http://www.youtube.com/JumpTeigen )

 

Beautiful physical geography and extreme sports with a video camera gives us a spectacular view of some glaciated valleys, cliff faces, fjords and mountainous terrain.

Great video ....pretty high up, makes you feel like a bird or something, and boy! does he sure come close to the sides of the cliffs! Wonder while he shut the camera off for the descent? that would have been pretty cool. The song was "don't stop my delerium" pretty cool thanks!

These "GoPro" cameras are truly one of a kind.  I would never personally do this type of stunt, but the few people that are willing to share this perspective are greatly appreciated.  The scenic views in Scandinavia are unique considering their ancient land formations.  The glaciation which formed in this specific region are like no other, the colors and various land matter all in one shot with rivers, mountains, and green valleys.  Even some of the fjords give off an emerald color from the oceans which can be seen as they literally fly down the cliffs and mountainsides.  Pictures are one thing, but a video of a birds eye view is on another level.

The extremity of wing-suiting over Switzerland embraces the natural beauty of its mountains and valleys. This sport is very dangerous and daring, but pays off in excitement and unbeatable views.
