Off with their Heads!



I've seen many photosets of the beach at St. Maarten (St. Martin) with the planes landing on the Princess Juliana International Airport only 10-20 meters over the heads of the sunbathing people, but never so well captured as this series by Austrian photographer Josef Hoflehner. You can view some of these spectacular images at the AD-Galerie in Switzerland until April 6, 2012.

I was there just last week...never would have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

Do you still have your head?

Most of it.

we were there last year and had a drink at the bar while watching the folks on the beach. It's a cute little beach, but totally separated from the rest of the island by the airport. While these pics are beautiful, this vid is a bit more accurate depiction

Pretty dumb girl :)
Or pretty weak arms, that's a possibility as well.

Thanks for the link!
