Taking off from Yverdons-les-Bains Airfield in a Cessna 172 the other day. Fun spot to go in the French speaking part of Switzerland. A little bit after Berne it switches to French coming from the Zurich area. I love that, not that much of another world but a little. People seem to have more time than we have in Zurich. A glass of wine with a meal is totally normal in the tiny restaurant next to the airfield and any other restaurant. Okay not for pilots :-)
Not sure what they grow on this field. Not everything is out yet hence the sandy parts.
...and I thought the pilot in the French speaking part can have a glass of wine before flying :) Just kidding. I'm not sure if we now have rule here for the boats, it use to be there were no rule and boating accident was a problem in the harbors. I think there may be rule now...not sure.
Anyway, a very cool image with this diagonal lines of green field...it give a sense of the speed too as the plane lift of and into the air...
Seeing the thumbnail my first impression was of an intentional camera movement shot. Seeing the larger size suggests this not probably not to be the case, although still possible. The diagonal element with the strong lines provides a strong graphical and abstract impact. Only your text gives the clue.
If the pilot is not allowed to drink a glass of vino before this doesn't hinder you to have one, right? ;-)
