Mind blank. Focus on water tower. Run.. run... run... the glider does the rest.

Is that another glider just off in the distance behind the hill? Great shot by the way. :D

You really get the feeling of being ready to take off, here. You have half of that view, plus the sun nicely captured but well-contained, and there's a lot of potential energy here, waiting to be released. I like the series, so far.

I really like this shot, gives a small feeling of what it must feel like.
