Photographer's Note

Lately I spotted some glider planes high above my home – they where using the thermals in order to gain height. Today I even got the chance to study a plane real close.

The young glider pilot where losing height, and in stead of taking any risk, he decided to make a safe landing (sounds better then emergency landing he told me ;-)
This good Danish cornfield was the safest place around and every thing went smooth – I didn’t actually see the landing (too bad) but did get some shots and permission to post.

I was amazed to see the mirror like reflections on the wing – I didn’t noticed this when I took the photo – The background was a little dull, so its been blurred – otherwise only cropped, resized and sharpened.

To show how much runway he got left I also posted
This – an example of Danish nature right now

So what to happen next. When I first spotted the plain he was calling for assistance and shortly after I left, a car with trailer arrived, the wings was dismounted and the plain was brought home in three pieces.

Second note: This shot been taken by holding the camera high above the head and hoping for something useful :-)
