Making full use of the 3fps shooting capacity of my 5D. Note the tow line drogue opening at the top of the lift as it is pulled back down to the winch.

I'm assuming this is shot totally manual - exposure and focus

Everything is on manual: Lens locked off, IS off, AWB on manual and exposure manually set. This is the only time that I shoot JPEGs to avoid filling up the cameras buffer and slowing the exposure rate down.

An ideal day for this type of shot, high cloud, light East wind (so shooting against a largely stationary background, with little change of lighting). Another very good image from Wallace. BTW: I am the pilot of the glider and I am in charge of the airfield during the week. Visitors are welcome and if you make yourselves know at the clubhouse we shall ensure that we are briefed on where to go (and not to go) to make the most of your visit. When we expect “unusual birds” I try to advise our regular visitors (such as Wallace) in advance. (And sometime provide a little background, information). Chris
