|Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a hollow fabric wing whose shape is formed by its suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.|
Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometres, though flights of 1–2 hours and covering some tens of kilometres are more the norm. By skilful exploitation of sources of lift the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres. (From Wikipedia)

I like the screen full of blue canvas, floating in the heavens. Neat shot.
A nice action shot with superb color contrasts, Eleu!
Light is well kept and exposure is nicely controlled too.
Well caught sharpness and clarity in this scene too.
She looks very comfortable. I thought paragliding was a bit more strenuous :-) Good timing and clarity.
