Missions from where an eagle flies

missions

I keep waiting for Matt to post this on his site but he hasn’t yet. It’s too good not to share. So, here is a shot from his RC plane taken last month. The smoke was pouring in from a forest fire to the west of us. It gave the mountains an eerie glow at sunset. He processed this photo in Gimp – it enlarges. Any guess as to how high the plane was?

From on high

This is the view from on top of Snowbowl ski area. I’ve never ridden a Ski lift going down and I never want to again. I’ve had people tell me this photo was worth the ride – I’m not so sure. I prefer going down on skis, thank you.
The wild flowers were very pretty! Even given the dry conditions. More iPhone photos since clutching the big, camera bag was not on the agenda…
