Glider's Silent Salute

Uploaded: March 10, 2005


Hang gliders are lined up as if in a silent salute to the day. Taken during Wills Wing Demo Days at Walaby Ranch in central Florida, 2002. The gliders are all tied to a long steel cable anchored to the ground. Florida boasts some of the best soaring conditions in the world as well as some of the best flight parks.

1/350 sec, f/6.7, Max f/2.8, ISO 100, Focal length 11mm. Levels adjusted in PS CS.
