A custom manufactured wing Boom placed the camera 4.5 ft (1.4 metres) ahead of the leading edge of the wing. Camera was electrically remote released by pilot/photographer (self-portrait) The unusual viewpoint is looking down on the glider while it is in a vertical bank at the apogee of a wingover. Altitude is 7000 ft. MSL (Nikon F90x, Nikor 16mm fisheye, Fuji Velvia film)

OK. For some photos simple words are not enough. They speak the best for themselves. But this one is simply amazing. I did wonder, how it was taken, but You explained that in comment. Therefore, just thank you for sharing the photo and the experience with us. Drago
