Today’s Lesson

ALWAYS ASK, NEVER ASSUME!!
Flaming Gorge UT/WY
  

Request approved, the CNN News photographer quickly used a cell phone to call the local airport to charter a flight.
 
He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting at the airport.

Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger.
 
He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, ‘Let’s go’.

The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.
 
Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, ‘Fly over Flaming Gorge and make low passes so I can take pictures of the reservoir and canyon walls.’

‘Why?’ asked the pilot.

‘Because I’m a photographer for CNN’, he responded, ‘and I need to get some close up shots.’

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, finally stammered, ‘So, what you’re telling me, is . . . You’re NOT my flight instructor?’

From High Above, Pilbra is Created

This looks more like an amazing painting but is actually an aerial photo taken high above the Pilbara. Known for its vast mineral deposits, in particular iron ore,the Pilbara (sounds like”Pillbra”) is a large, dry, thinly populated region in the north of Western Australia. Thank you Andrew Griffiths for this award winning aerial photography.
