Default Great day for some AP

I finally fixed the servo actuated trigger on my camera and got out for some AP today. Initially, I thought it was too windy and had given up on flying, but I decided to brave the wind and get out and enjoy an otherwise beautiful day. When I got the plane up to altitude, I found the winds to be blowing quite briskly, yet they were very consistent and managable. They also set the aircraft up for some stunningly efficient glides. Not sure what was going on out there today, but I was able to keep the ol Aerobird Xtreme up for over a half an hour. Probably could of kept flying but I was eager to get down and check my pictures.

Here are the best two (out of 51!) in my opinion. Enjoy.

Very nice, Hope you dont mind but I used Paint Shop to lighten them up a little just to see what it looked like. I'm sure others could do better to get the color right. Great shots and thanks for sharing.

Lemme try one and see if this Adobe Photoshop software's been worth the price (I'm just learning to use it properly, along with Premiere).
