Spring is comming slowly to Iceland. On 02.04.2011 I have been flying with my friends Elin and Dimitrij in Herdisarvik. Nice S/SE direction, about 5-8 m/s on the take off. As always in sunny condition we had a nice thermic, especially on the right hand site looking from the parking place. One of the best flying in this seazon.
We were forcded to land sooner due to big snowy cloud which was comming fast. Dimmi and Elin landed on time but I was playing too long affecded by doing photos and moovies for this moovie, so during landing approach I was catched by stronger wind and lift, I had to make a top landing in a muddy terain, stupid me :), next time I will land faster to avoid such nasty surprices.
Spring season is comming with big steps, prepare your stuff for next adventures !
