Welcome to my first 2016 winter flight.  After a seven week hiatus due to ever changing weather conditions unsuitable for pleasure flying on a Sunday, it felt good to stretch my wings, so to speak.  And with the snow
only partially covering the ground, each view was extremely
pronounced with various dark and light hues and various
shadow present.  All photos were shot within the states
of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

As always, I hope you enjoy the view from above
