Great, this really clear sharp light is perfect for the subject.

@Pied Crow: This and the B-24 it was with were the cleanest prettiest WWII-era planes I've ever seen. B-eautiful. About 2 hours after I took this the sun set just to the left of frame. Woulda made a nice pic. Oh well.

I love this shot. Nice reflections off the props (whatever that round part is called, holding the props on!) Sounds like you'll have to go back and get another one during the golden hour.

@Lesley: Too late, they gone. They'll be back next year, tho'. I'll put up a pic of the other airplane down the road. They were so squeaky clean, really cared for.
