Can You Feel the Heat?

Picture is Gary Ward flying at Boshears Memorial Fly-In 2010 in Augusta, Georgia. Gary is a friend of mine who is a real showman in the air! Gary's favorite line is, "It's tough being geen, but sometimes it's kinda nice." Photo credit: Dean Wingard, Nikon D90, AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens; Photoshop to size. I'm an amateur photographer who likes to fly and take photos of cool planes.
