Didn't think much of it until Cameron had to tell me that I lost top of the day yesterday because of your shot . Regardless your shot was far better and the final result shows just that.
Congratulation! All we need now is for Danny to get up there!
Take care Ralph,

Nice job Ralph. Matt, you are right as I told you last night, all 3 of you have gotten top of day and I have yet to snag it and have been going at it longer than you guys!
Anyway, nice shot, congrats dude!
Bring back Bethune!

You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

you got yourself a very nice shot there!
Great lighting and a good exposure.
Don't feel bad when you can "only" catch a bird in this evening light.
Some guys specially go out at dawn to take these kind of shots
Anyway, keep these nice shots coming!

Thanks all for the comments on this one. It was a tough one. My camera slammed several times to the window during this VERY bumpy approach into TUS.
