Melanie, if I'd taken that photo, it would be one of my favorites too!

OK, time to catch up with all these photographs!!

Moongypsy- I like your shot. It feels beautiful yet 'ghostly' in some way. A nice effect! And the sky feels very powerful.

Ohenry- No need to thank me for the comments. I should be thanking you for contributing such a great picture to this topic.

QDM- What a breath-taking shot! It almost looks like the mountain is wearing a hat!!! Can I ask do you fly? Or hire a pilot?

Selvin- I like this shot because it does not show the 'typical' image of Hawaii. The huge mountains remind me of the power the earth has to create such a beautiful place. But also the volcano suggests destruction. Making me appreciate the beauty even more!

Barbara- I am sorry you can't find a suitable photograph. And I understand that some shots should be kept for your own eyes. Thank you for still contributing to the topic.

Melanie- A very nice picture. Dramatic and moody!! And I am glad you still have time to produce great shots like this between episodes of 24

Deexley- A cheesy pun but it was funny!!! :lol:

Regards,

Steve

Steve,

I own and fly a kind of ultralight aircraft called a Powered Parachute. It's a two seat, three wheeled machine that is totally open with nothing to restrict the view. It flies at about 30 mph and can fly completely hands off for hours, making it a great platform for photography.

That sounds very interesting QDM! I am on a university exchange in Frankfurt currently, but at home in Belfast I am learning to fly.

I have been learning in a Piper Cherokee. However, the low-wing design of this aircraft makes it a little awkward to take shots.

What is the ceiling of the 'powered parachute?' And what is its typical climb-rate?

Perhaps you could email me a photo of it?

Regards,

Steve

Great shot, Melanie!

And, in contrast to your picture of the real sun , here's a picture of a fake sun. This is a spectacular installation in the Tate Modern museum in London.



This might be my favorite photo of mine.

Steve,

You can get info on powered parachutes at http://www.powerchutes.com . The ceiling is usually advertised at 10,500 feet but I've been up over 12,000 feet with no problem flying solo. Flying at tree top level is the most fun, dropping down into desert canyons, skimming the sand dunes on the coast, etc.. Climb rate is from 500 to 1000 feet per minute.

Here in Oregon we travel around and camp out with our PPCs in tow on small trailers. We use airports, roads, dry lake beds, pastures, etc., as runways. The scenery is spectacular.
