Not gonna hold its own too well in a free study, but its been so long since I contributed anything and I like this shot myself. Thats reason enough to enter it.

This was taken at Cambridge Gliding Club, at stupid o'clock in the morning on midsummers day, when we all got up early and set up in time to be flying well before sunrise.

Very basic PP - some curves to lighten up a tad without losing saturation. Crop. Save for web.

04:57am - and not the first flight by a long way!

Yo Kirsty - I didn't know you were in this challenge !

Elegant profile to the glider sihouetted in the sky, and lovely morning colours.

This was a tough FS though with some wonderful shot's in it even by FS standards . .

The plane doesnt do it for me in this shot, perhaps a person or something larger

Incredible capture. I love gliders, and this wonderfully captures man's contest with lift, gravity, speed and drag. GREAT!!!
