A friend of mine took me flying the other day. We started by doing pattern work because the marine layer that morning hadn't burned off yet. After we each had a few landings, the cloud layer cleared and we went to the practice area for some power on/power off stalls. We then climbed up to about 8,000 ft and flew over the mountains where we slowed down and opened up the window. I managed to snag these shots you see below. Some of the photos are a little washed out or over exposed due to my hasty light meter reads, but the haze gives it a certain sci-fi feel that I wouldn't trade for anything. All in all, a beautiful day for flying and photography.
