[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A glider or sailplane is a type of glider aircraft used in the sport of gliding. It has rigid wings and an undercarriage. Some gliders, known as motor gliders, are also used for gliding and soaring, but have engines which can be used for extending a flight and, for some types, for take-off. Aircraft such as hang gliders and paragliders are foot-launched and so are described in separate articles, though their differences from sailplanes are covered below. Glider aircraft that are used for purposes other than recreation, for example for military purposes, do not soar. (From Wikipedia)

quelle vue de ce planeur sueprbe iamge quelle forme ronde et bombée à l'avant et l'ampleur des ailes sans un total pur ciel superbe.
Belle soirée

Hi Eleu, You are my neighbour and I put image of airplane too. I could feel the rigid wings so well because of the angle and the close up. Wonderful clarity despite of the distance. The tilted position enhances its powerful and rigid wings. Thank for sharing

Hi Eleu
There is a lot of empty space in the photo so the concentration is always on the plane. There is nice light on the plane which has nice detail. I do think though, that if the plane was at a greater angle it would add to the dynamism.
I hope you don't mind but I've done a workshop to see if my thought works.

bonjour Eleu

magnifique ce planeur sur fond de ciel pur
belle prise bravo

bonne journee

Gliding is something in the back of my mind that I would dearly love to try out.
