Aerial Photos of Half Dome

What  day Aug 12 was. Finally, I got a small plane flight over Half Dome. Kim P flew Ned I and me from Hayward airport. Air was smooth and clear. After an hour we got over Yosemite and circled Half Dome about 4 times. We could make out hikers going up the cables….looked like a light day. I took  ton of 12 MP shots. My videos came out best. Man – It’s going to be cool to lie in  bed and relive that.

Here’s a couple. I’ll show a lot more on my webinar Aug 21. Look for details here soon. It’ll be a GoToMeeting like the last ones. Bonus – repeat viewers at 1/2 the price.  Then I plan to do them on other hikes at the park.  More later.
