I can't figure it out... would I avoid skydiving to protect my own welfare, or that of my camera?

P.S. Thank you for an excellent shot from above the clouds - I flew in a plane recently, first time in 4 years, and I'd forgotten how beautiful it is up there.

The trick to have the door open... :o)

Thanks to those who commented - it is always a little trickier to frame stuff when you can't use the viewfinder... or the manual shutter release... and have to set your camera before you helmet mount it ready to jump...

But I like this photo - shame on those who only reckoned it was worth 2 or 3 points... ;o)

Nice sun flair and texture of the clouds. Perfect placement of the wing of the plane, it gives perspective.
