I always imagined skydiving to be a frantic, chaotic experience. OK, maybe you get 15 seconds of “whoa this looks cool” before panic sets in as you start zipping down the air and plummeting to earth – don’t freak out, oh MY GOD PULL THE CORD, PULL THE EFFING CORD ALREADY YOU JOKESTER. This slow motion video, taken with the Melbourne Skydive Centre, is nothing like that.
It makes skydiving look peaceful, like you’re in graceful harmony with the sky. People on top of clouds, people look like ballerinas, people look like they can actually fly – it’s just mesmerising. Watch it. [Betty Wants In via Hypebeast]
