Did somebody mention mountains? This is the Absaroka Wilderness in southern Montana, between Livingston and Red Lodge.

Beautiful Zim, but I'd want four engines, FL410, and a half dozen "Find Me Spots" over that stuff

I don't have any current aviation images to share but the images I do have, are aviation related.

I came upon a few taxiway lights that were in various stages of disrepair. I figured with a little TLC I could re-purpose them into household lamps. So I stripped them of all the wiring and light housings. I took them all apart and started the process of refinishing them. I sanded and repainted the head assembly, coupling and column and I threw the blue lens in the dishwasher. Made a mold and poured a cement base heavy enough to hold the light. Wired up a new light with lamp cord and a ceramic socket. Added an on/off switch into the head assembly (black round knob) and had myself an aviation themed office lamp.

It's not practical for anything other than to look at but I can't stop turning it off and on just to see the blur light, !

I just thought I would share.

After this display there was a short pause in the show when the fire truck sent out to douse the burning grass slid off the embankment and got stuck. Oops.

Much as I love seeing the whole aircraft, for me there's definitely something captivating about being able to see the pilot at work. Some of Jay and Steve's recent works with eye contact are great examples of that. It just draws me into the moment. Not sure which crop I like better.

Erich, I prefer the close in crop which makes the pilot the center of attention.

I think I do too. Of course, there's also pushing the idea a bit too far, which I have a tendency to do. Then i think it loses too much context.

Jim, if that last landscape was a little too gnarly for you, how about this little slice of heaven on the outskirts of Bozeman, Montana? I could make do with that little cabin in the woods at bottom right...

At the same time, out the left side of the airplane, I had this view of the Bridger Mountains shining in the early morning sun.
