frank w. degenhardt level-deluxe 4/15/2010 5:52:16 AM

Jeff- A special treat for you and for us. I know these have to be amoung your most prized pictures and they certainly are rare beauties as this will not be seen by most of us in our life time. While the pictures speak for themselves in their beauty and fasination, I think they also speak of the talent of the artist. To get everything this clear, to capture the gogeous colors, the sharp details, is the work of someone who understands and has knowledge of his camera and of photography. Both pictures are award winners and I hope they get the honor they and you so rightly deserve. Amazing my friend.
Have a great day, enjoy. #8536632

Nancy J. Locke level-deluxe 4/15/2010 7:02:16 AM

MOST AWESOME, JEFF!!! The lines of the jet mimics the mountain range. Totally COOL!!!

Description


Over Alaska - After Air-Refueling, this F-15C takes a position off from the left wing of the KC-135R while waiting for the remaining 3 aircraft to take on fuel. My ride was courtesy of a California Air Force Reserve Unit. This was taken in the month of August and you can see that the mountains are still beautifully capped with snow! I have added another image in the comment section so you can see the refueling operation out of the back of the aircraft. (Travel [Alaska] & Place [23,000 Feet MSL])

Negative scanned and processed with PSE7.
