Last Christmas I was given a gift of a 1 hour sports flight in a light aircraft from a small Airfield just outside of Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.

I had difficulty arranging an actual date for the flight and it had been postponed twice already because of the weather. Today (11 Oct 10) I finally managed to redeem my flight coupon.

The morning had started off rather misty and although it was clearing up by 1:00pm when I took the flight, there were still areas of low lying fog all around the area.

At the bottom left corner of the shot is the summit of Tinto Hill, the highest hill in Lanarkshire at 2320 feet above sea level.

Single RAW image Tonemapped in Photomatix Pro.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
Lens: Sigma 18-200mm
