PHOTOSET 10
"Morning Window of Opportunity"
Triumph, Despair, Pickets, Shuksan
JANUARY 12, 2012


We had a short window of opportunity to capture the peach tones of morning light as the rising sun shone through a narrow clearing between the horizon and a cloud layer above. The flight took us into the heart of the North Cascades, where we photographed Despair, Triumph, and the Pickets. As we were flying around the rugged summits, another plane detected us, contacted us, and we then proceeded to engage in a good-natured aerial photoshoot of each other’s planes. This 1 hour flight totaled 146 air miles, and originated and ended at the airstrip in Concrete.

The flight path is shown to the right. (This flight line is made with actual GPS data.)
