The Joy of Flight
Just resized. Taken by friend's DLSR camera in southern Bohemia, Czech Republic while we did a "recon" of a summer camp of a Scout troop I am a member of. (Tee-pees visible on the ground.)
While driving to Matanuska Glacier, my son and I "stumbled upon" this little piece of paradise just south of Palmer, Alaska. Shot with my Nikon Coolpix 3200. Cropped and slightly enhanced with Apple iPhoto.
