Flight around Parkland County, Alberta

My neighbor Ryan took me around the vicinity of my place one early autumn afternoon.
This is my first attempt at aerial photography from a small plane.
We were flying in a beautiful Cessna 150. We flew from Villeneuve airport out to
Lake Wabamun and return. Most fields were looking green but some were swathed.

The best part of it...I actually took control of the plane for about 15 minutes
during the climb to altitude...WHAT A RUSH!!!

I'll be adding more photos to this gallery in the next few weeks as we have plans to fly again one the autumn colours are at their prime (early October, weather permitting)
