On Approach - I happened by when they were doing quick circuits to train the ground crew. I picked this spot as being the best place to stand at in terms of composition. They are coming in to land at this point. This is actually a reasonably risky sport, there aren't many flat places to land at (they have to be clear of trees).

Thanks guys, I think the glider looks a little jaggy here but that's a problem that can't be fixed at this resolution.

I had some notes on how I wanted to process this picture, but in the end I just winged it. Ha-ha.
