Photographer's Note

Please click here for a larger version of this photograph on "beta" TE.

Three weeks ago, as part of an effort to try to keep fit, I climbed to the top of our local hill, Tinto, the highest hill in Lanarkshire at 711 metres (2,333 feet). It was a beautiful day with just a light breeze and a little group of people had set off from the southern slopes of the hill and were paragliding over the valley below.

I sat for over an hour watching the antics of these paragliders before heading down and home for tea. This picture was taken looking south, almost into the sun, but you can also see in the distance the turbines of yet another of the many windfarms which now grace so many of Scotland's hills.

Here you can see another paraglider and a section of the River Clyde below glinting in the sunlight.

And two more paragliders here.

ISO 100, 1/2000 sec at f/8, focal length 55mm.
