We went out to the model airplane flying field this morning just as the sun was coming up.  I took quite a few photos with the tripod but felt I was missing the glider… so I took the camera off the tripod and started to just follow the glider with the camera. This lucky shot was taken while facing east into the sun… post-processing consisted of a crop (to give the glider more room in front rather than behind) and adjusted the black point to darken the silhouette a wee bit.

With as many photos as I’ve taken at the flying field, I felt I would have been remiss not post at least one for this month’s “flight” theme!

  1. What an amazing silhouette! Evertyhing is rendered into its simplest form. It’s almost like a silkscreen.

  2. I love the color tone of this one. The plane’s silhouette looks so perfect with the angle you took. We have a model plane field not 5 miles from our house that we need to get to. Maybe I will now. Nice to know you can get some shots by hand.

  3. I love the graphic quality too,fabulous composing and wonderful tones.

  4. Love, love, love that silhouette against those beautiful tones…..really awesome!

  5. That is an amazing shot, Judi! Beautifully composed and the color tones are splendid….

  6. Desert gliding how romantic!

  7. Wow – what a wonderful graphic image! I love the simplicity and coloration.
