Hang gliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies a light and non-motorized foot-launch aircraft called a hang glider. Most modern hang gliders are made of an aluminium alloy or composite frame covered with synthetic sailcloth to form a wing. The pilot is ensconced in a harness suspended from the airframe, and exercises control by shifting body weight in opposition to a control frame, but other devices, including modern aircraft flight control systems, may be used.

This is a perfect compromise between your airplanes and the birds. It's almost like Superman, although he doesn't need any technical assistance to fly. It's a plain, minimalistic photo, and again you have captured this flying object with perfect sharpness in a very appealing composition.

Fine action view of the hang glider soaring in the blue.
I have always been intrigued by hang gliding, but too afraid to try it. I prefer water sports, where if one crashes, they land in the water, more forgiving than solid ground.

Ah, the freedom of flying is never as enjoyable as with a non motorized air craft such as a hang glider of paraglider. This composition evokes that feeling perfectly.
have a great weekend
