This photo was taken on September 21 with a Canon T2i and 100-400mm lens from an altitude of 8,500' (about 5,000' overhead). Cropped, level adjustments, and reduced for file size.
Silver Bullet Passed By
I took this picture on Saturday, April 21, 2012 in Mojave Airport during their "open house" event. I was taking a picture of the airplane I was piloting when the airplane with the open canopy taxied by. Note the image of the Boeing in the background through the open canopy.
The camera I used is my old Sony DSC-H9. The picture is only reduced in size to meet the size limitation requirement, and it is unaltered otherwise.
