The conditions were not 'ideal' but stil safe enough for a 'quicky'. In a moment of inspiration I did hand him over my camera and asked him to take a few pictures. While I regulardly take pictures when I fly, I have very few pics of me flying.
The eagle you see behind my glider is a 'local' and don't get fooled by the apparent proximity. The camera had a 10x zoom and it was fully 'on'.
