Soaring high

Saturday was a glorious spring day and I had several errands to run. My camera went along for the ride. I spotted this airplane and glider, parked, and got this shot of them on the way to the wild blue yonder and free flight by the glider. On most spring and fall weekends with sun and mild winds I see a glider or two. Sometimes when I'm working in the yard, I will hear plane after plane struggling to tow a glider to release altitude.

Can you see the glider when it's released, Lew? Your shots are very interesting! :)

Your header photograph is of course timely and pretty! :)

Love the glider shot! And, oh, isn't that blue sky wonderful!!!

Love the flowers in your header, too, and the cherry blossoms are delightful. Have a great day!
