    Shot with my iPhone.

    Just went up in that thing. Ugh. I need a drink! haha:drinks:

    Took 3 bodies and a handful of lenses. One of the companies needs to make a fast telephoto. 200mm was choice, the 150 2.8 will be nice whenever it gets here. I'll post pictures later. But holy ****. Holy ****. Scary.

    It's my considered opinion that (other things being equal) I prefer light planes with high wings to light planes with low wings (both as a pilot and as a passenger) but having said that any day flying a plane is better than sitting at work like I am now :)

    Was sort of a challenge getting shots over the wing, lots of banking. Also had to shoot out the windows. Not with my gun though, which would have been preferable as it was kind of hot. But that let to a lot of glare and reflections on some of the pictures. I'll post some up in a bit. Did this as a test flight, now I'm better prepared for what I hope will be the real deal.

    Little bit of miniature faking. I'm at work so I don't have much in the way of editing abilities here, and I only have low-res jpegs to work with.

    Amen! As I tell my wife, when the wheels leave the ground, I've reached my destination.
