Invictus the Long E-Z
I shot this photo from my Zenith 701 over the Puget Sound in Washington state. The photo was taken December 28, 2012. Getting a Long E-Z slow enough to fly at a 701's fastest speed was a challenge.
It was shot using a Canon 5dMII and a 24-105L. Only color temperature correction, dust removal, and other clean-up were done to this photo.

Taken on an iPhone 5 at El Paso International thanks to a kind soul who got us up close.

The picture is cleaned up a bit in Photoshop, with some noise reduction, color corrections, and a slight crop to get the horizon level.
