Christopher Jobson

Conservationist Kerri Wolter who manages the Vulture Conservation Program in Magaliesberg, South Africa gets the opportunity to paraglide with several thousand vultures. Really incredible camera work and breathtaking shots of birds I wouldn’t normally consider so beautiful or majestic. Head over to Vimeo for the HD version which is an order of magnitude more awesome.

Casteller: Human Pyramids in Spain

November 11, 2010

Christopher Jobson

What the what! File this under how have I not heard or seen this before.

In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This uniquely Catalan tradition requires astonishing strength, finesse, and balance. Not to mention courage.

And then they send the five-year old kids in flippin’ helmets straight up to the top of these wobbly people towers. Wow. (via booooooom)
