Last year, a good friend took us up in his plane for an afternoon of aerial sight-seeing. I got some phenomenal shots, but the ones I’ve chosen for this week are those during the last few minutes of the flight. Our descent back to Earth.
The runway is on the left but we haven’t yet been given clearance to land.
Round and down we go.
It’s dizzying at times, but marvelous in its freedom.
Then we are tethered to the Earth once more.
And the sense of being weightless and free diminishes, leaving a mix of relief at landing safely and loss at not being airborne.
