What a weekend (June 9th and 10th), with both days dedicated to flying...WoooHooo !!!

Saturday morning was spent 5,000 feet over the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania with the intent of shooting a complete array of photos featuring the remains of the Bethlehem Steel Works and the relatively new Sands Casino and Hotel built adjacent to the Steel Works plant, among other areas of interest that looked appealing.

As always, I hope you enjoy "The View from Above"
