Sometimes.... it's just amazing!

Real Estate Attorney

I flew out of Orlando last night as the sun was setting and witnessed something that was absolutely amazing.  Unfortunately, it was very difficult to capture quality pictures.  If I used the flash, I got a glare off the window and if I didn't use the flash... the pics were blurry.  I'm posting these pictures.... not because they are great pictures... but because I had to share something so amazing.  You may have to use your imagination a bit.

Martin, Rick stole my line. I love flying at dusk or dawn just because of the view.

Martin, very pretty though blurry. I've actually taken photos flying in/out of Orlando myself. Let's see ... where are they?  :-)  Seriously, they were not as pretty as your's are. Sunsets are amazing, and I love the way the horizon slips away..........

MARTIN - The view really was amazing, even if it was difficult to capture.  I actually did something similar a while back.  I was driving back from one of my listings and there was a sunshower.  The gray skies just seemed to part in the middle and the sun was shining through.  I grabbed my camera and took the picture through the windshield while driving.  I had no idea how the picture would look until I was stopped at a light.  It actually came out really cool.  Thanks for sharing this one.

Kathy - Thanks

Kim - I've flown at dusk before and really love it!

Brian - The pictures don't do the colors justice.  It really was something spectacular!

Jo-Anne - Yes it is!

BLR - I didn't even notice the wing on fire.... that's cool!

Danny - Great minds think alike.

Teri - I'm waiting... did you find those pics yet?

Dan - Glad to be an inspiration.

Adam - let's see it!

Another one of God's miracles. I'm not one for flying but to see this (looking outside the window) i would have been at peace. Feels like your closer to God up there.

Hey Martin.  Brilliant skyline shot.  I love flying because it provides such great perspective on our lives.  When the sky, water, and land melt into one another, it gives me a glimpse of infinity which is rather humbling.  Ding!  Thanks for sharing.
