A personal best! The title originally ended in "...to Black's Beach", but I thought it was too long. Some of you guessed it was a nude beach, and one or two guessed Black's.

Wait, unless my eyes deceive me, those people down there look... um, nekkid! But seriously, great capture and composition with the paraglider coming in for a landing. At this location, I would've been a little... distracted, and probably would've missed the the action as he flew by. Nice job.

LOL I think this is Black's Beach in So. California? If not, it easily could be with the glider airport close by. Great title.
