… I had a beautiful morning flight as the clouds were forming and cloud base over the plateau was less than 8,000’ and I easily went on top at a little over 9500’; couldn’t get the shots I wanted, so adjusted my tripod by about 1500’ vertically which gave me the angles I wanted to shoot through the clouds.
I was just the other side of Oak Creek Canyon when I took this shot. You can see Oak Creek and the Slide Rock Park in the lower right portion of the photo … then the canyon walls and in the lower left quadrant is Wilson Mountain and you can see the remnants of the volcanic cone in from the left and up about a third of the way from the bottom, beyond that is Long Canyon and the view is to the SW and you can see into the Chino Wash area. A fun photo and we’ll see what I can get tomorrow morning too. Spent a lot of time working on the ship this weekend … kinda like the joy in working on a boat, car or whatever.
Warm and quiet weekend and 4th and nice how it is cooling down tonight. Good sleeping and then espresso by 6A and back up to the airport.
Have a beautiful day and week … only a couple of months before labor day is upon us and the fun days of summer mere memories and the cool days of fall arrive.
And in this journey over a thousand hills and valleys called life, he is wisest who
is patient where the way is hard, has faith when he does not understand, and carries
into the dark places the light of a cheerful heart.
