I don’t take any photos on most flights, there just isn’t anything compelling to get a picture of. But every once in a while, the clouds, light and scenery combine to make a memorable and photogenic flight. This trip, so far, was the best and I doubt I’ll ever have everything line up like that again.
I had a business meeting in Phoenix and another the next day in Salt Lake City. This meant a pre-dawn take-off from California and up over the Sierras as the sun was coming up. There had been a storm the previous day, so there was still some debris clouds and leftovers that made for a dramatic sky. After the meeting in Phoenix I took off and just about the time the light was starting to fade I approached the Grand Canyon, and again had great light.
