More photos will be coming in a week or so. I've been out of town and haven't had the opportunity to fly. Anyone have any special requests?

Awesome. Maybe some closer shots of the Hillcrest and Westgate areas? Any shot of downtown is always welcome! :thumbs up:

Monday was too windy. I'll try again this weekend.

I'd like some photos of Cedar Springs area and then the big rock quary in Pacolet. Most folks don't know how big that thing is. Then you could fly up the Pacolet river and take afew photos of the Glendale/ Converse area , maybe a shot or two of the development around Hillcrest then move on to some shots of Lake Blalock/ and Lake Bowen area. All or some of these woild be great. Have a great day in the air.

Great pictures as always! Its a shame those shots of downtown aren't a little more clear. They would make some fantastic desktop backgrounds ;)
