Diving from The Old Bridge : Art of Movement

It’s been a great privilege for us to watch notably famous cliff divers from around the world competing in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series live.

One famous diver, Orlando Duque, with his beautifully sculpted physics @ age 40 fills one full of optimistic hope, that with workouts, being physically fit is still within one’s grasp. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š

Wishing all Happy Summer Holidays!ย

      Yes, it was incredibly beautiful to watch! Weather couldn’t be more perfect to dip one’s feet in the refreshingly cool river. Thanks for passing by Rosemary! Loved your post on Perth. A great insight! Wishing you & family a great week ahead!

      • You’re very welcome and thanks for passing by here too. Sounds like you’re having lovely weather at the moment. It is cold and wet again here today but we mustn’t complain as we need the rain and of course for us spring is not too far away now. Wishing you and your family a lovely rest of the week too and a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

      Happy you loved it, Steve H. Many thanks for passing by and for making my day with your kind comments. I have fear of heights so it is always in awe when I see people diving from great heights! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wishing you & family a great week ahead.
      Ps- Love your post on “Some-seek-an-oasis-in-the-desert-others-seek-a-desert-in-the-taiga-chara-sands” . Greatly enjoyed your perspective on Russia. Always insightful from different angle.

  5. I only saw “regular” divers jumping from the bridge when I was there – but it already was pretty amazing.

    • Hey there, Rabirius! Many thanks for passing by & taking the time to peruse the video! Yes, even the usual regular divers are a pretty amazing sight to watch. One of my favourite viewpoint to capture some diving shots is the cafe where I can take my time to have a coffee while waiting.
      Every summer, there is a diving competition @ the old bridge.
      Just passed by your site, your autumn capture is spectacular. Your last year photography exhibition in Frankfurt must have been stunning with all your captures & works blown up…
      Wishing you a great week ahead! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
