Final approach to the airstrip at Foula seen from the co-pilot's seat. Foula is one of Great Britain's most remote islands with only a dozen houses and 30 inhabitants, but there is a shelter next to the gravel strip, a windsock (particularly important in the Shetlands!) and a fire engine waiting for the Directflight BN-2 Islander, which arrives five times a week. Thx for your help with the edit, Flo!

One of your most awesome catches ever! Love the colour and contrast settings, especially the coastline with the sea. Gonna make it among the high-hitters, i guess!

Brilliant photograph indeed, so much nicer than the everyday SXM shot. There's no editor's choice here, so you get a photographer's choice from me instead ;-)

Best,

Great photo! With the North - South orientation and the prevailing westerly winds there must be lots of crosswind landing here. I will have to visit one day.
