    I have never flown a paraglider, but I have been up in a hot air balloon and I remember the feeling well. What I love about this photograph, apart from the colours, the light, and the composition, is the feeling this photograph expresses through the timing and the point of view. We (the viewer) are right there, right in the moment and about to launch off into the sky, alone and looking down on the rest of the world. Soaring the thermals with the eagles. The adventure begins!
