Friday Photo: sunrise over Georgia

Click on image for full size.

The view: Sunrise over northern Georgia in May of this year.

The pilot: Gary Weissel

The airplane: 1974 Cessna 172M

The mission: Pictures with my Canon Rebel T3i with a Canon lens.

The memory: In the summer months here I love sunrise flights. It’s cooler and you beat the heat, humidity, afternoon thunderstorms, and convective turbulence. It’s also pretty quiet up there with little air traffic. But it requires waking up around 0500 to get to the airport early enough to catch the sunrise airborne.
