    Well, it was a crazy long day starting with sunrise pics of a 150, then 5 friends flying over for lunch in their Christen Eagles, to ending the day with a sunset shoot with this 172. I didn't get many of this one. There was one cloud in the sky. It went from horizon to horizon, from West to East, and put a huge shadow across us. Oh well, it's a local plane, I'll get it again!

    Shot from my friend Donn's beautiful 170, with him as an excellent photo pilot!

    @Lowflynjack How did you get the sun to shine from under the plane in that first shot? Lake reflection?

    We were just flying North, turning East. The cloud was about to block out the sun, so I had him turn and head toward what light was left.

    Regardless, nice pics of the 172. I liked them as usual.

    I'm jealous of what looks like good weather. I've had two people on my list for an air-to-air shoot for about a month now. We keep rescheduling when the weather doesn't cooperate. Too windy, too rainy, too cloudy... Darn New England weather.
