Hang glider surfing with the Nikon D300s

Professional photographer (and Nikon ambassador) Mark Watson heard about an interesting phenomena. In a certain area of Australia, there is a rare cloud formation know as the “Morning Glory“. Mark shot video and still pictures of these clouds for the Red Bull Glorious Days project.

It’s a cloud formation that rolls across the salt flat region during certain times of the year, the “Morning Glory” is up to 600 miles long, and moves up the 35 mph. Apparently, if you’re insane, it’s possible to ‘surf’ the cloud wave in a hang glider. I don’t know about surfing, but the images are absolutely spectacular. And the photographer took the video and stills with a Nikon D300s.

Thanks to Mike for the tip.
