Denis Schryer, president of the Canadian Historical Aircraft Association, flying the Stearman. Harnessed in, I took the picture blind. Used sepia to give it the vintage look.

My fiancée took this photo while flying home to PAE from PWT for dinner. Times like this make me feel so fortunate to be able to fly.
Taken by my Panasonic Lumix, with no alterations.
Too Much Snow?
This is a little more snow than KCVO is used to.
Taken with an iPhone 4S; no manipulation.
