Contrails - 2
 
I recently posted a photo of the Airstream with contrails overhead. Here's a photo from the source of those contrails - right from the flight deck. My friend purchased a new camera and was trying it out. No Airstream in the photo, but they are in the "airstream."

Interesting grey tones - thought you'd enjoy it. They are somewhere over the Rocky Mountains. Wish I had this view from my office.

If you are at all a fan of baseball movies and Kevin Costner this is a great place to seek out - if you are lucky they occasionally have an evening game where the ghost players come out of the corn field (we missed it by a day).

Thanks,


Jay

That's what I'm talking about - awesome!

Only full timers I presume.

Great shots! Tell me that sign doesn't say "falling rocks".

Love the shot, really loved the piggy bank, but this could be a WEE stretch of the theme of where has your airstream taken you? Still not ruling it out!

Oh no, didn't mean to include the flight-deck shot as part of this month's contest.

Just submitted it because I thought it was pretty kewl.

Carry on.

Wow! It wasn't just another celluloid aphrodisiac. You've actually been there.

Falling rocks only bother those Flat Topped S.O.B.'s. On Airstream's and old Beetle's the rocks just roll off to the side of the road.

So great to see all the Iowa love! I live 20 minutes away from those bridges (as well as John Wayne's birth place).

Also, FaN, I totally think the picture from the "airstream" qualifies for the contest!

Hi JD!

Double Wow! It's one of my favourite movies. I watch it whenever the tear ducts need a lube job. I even have the cookbook. "Francesca's White Lasagna" is a favourite. The Recipes of Madison County: Jane M. Hemminger, Courtney A. Work: 9780848715069: Amazon.com: Books

Thanks for your photo support. Maybe I can bribe this month's judge with a ticket on said airline. Ya think? :brows: Hope he doesn't mind the cheap seats and a bag of stale pretzels! :lol:

Fall leaves at Champoeg State Park in Oregon... Love this park with all the bike and walking trails and only 30 minutes from Portland Oregon

Those were some great pictures of Iowa but Clint Eastwood should have his "man card" revoked for making the "Bridges of Madison County" movie!

"I know what you're thinking, punk. You're thinking 'did he fire six shots or only five?' Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a Nikon F with an S36 drive, the most powerful camera in the world..... you've gotta ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

:p
