Went line scouting in the north cascades today. This is by far the best way to find lines and view the mountains. Aerial photography is difficult I am finding ..but well worth it...I am stoked to get back out and take more shots. Got the crap scared out of me a couple of times for sure. Thanks Jim!!

Sweet photos.. You had some fun light to work with.... A lot of nice lines and places to loose yourself having fun, in a good way...
I hear ya on the challenges of aerial photography.. Just had my first good taste of it New Years over Yosemite.. I'll drop some photos in another thread so not to spoil yours... But yah, definitely can be challenging... A good polarizer to cut glare and some clean windows helps... But ya need good light and a good pilot, for sure...
And I dig the crazy plane... My buddy who flew me over Yosemite was just telling me about the "fun" characteristics of the twin overhead engines compared to the conventional ones.. Namely, the urge for the nose of the plane to dive down when you suddenly add power, rather than the opposite was other planes behave... Can be exceptionally entertaining on water landings I hear...
