These photos were taken in 2009. It's a 12-way base jump in Kjerag, Norway.

We are jumping from a famous cliff called Kjerag, which is about 1000m above sea level and located in the Lysefjorden, Norway (near Stavanger).

It's a very popular place for base jumpers in the summer months.

The guys in the photo are from all different parts of the world, one Kiwi (me), an Aussie, a couple of Poms, a few Americans, a Swiss and a Russian.

It's pretty scary jumping with a lot of people but we planned the jump and everyone knew what we had to do to keep it safe.

It was one of the best base jumping experiences I've had.
