    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

     

     

     

    From this afternoon...

    All the rain California had this winter is really bringing the hills to life. The photos don't do the scene justice-- just imagine walking through this vivid field, looking up to the blue sky, and feeling the warm spring breeze. It was like something out of a Disney film. I've never seen the hills so full of poppies, it's stunning.

    Stunning! In the San Diego area the crowds were so bad that driving to the fields required an additional 1 1/2 hours. The downside to all this is many abused the poppy fields by taking pictures while in the field and trampling down many of the poppies. Some lied down on top of the poppies. crying

    The near by town is holding its breath for this weekend. It could get crazy.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    That sounds much like Yosemite on a summer weekend.  


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

     

     

    There is still snow @10,000 feet :)

    From up in the mountains we could overlook the beautiful high desert as well as see all the way to downtown LA. All this in stark contrast to the poppy fields from just a few weeks ago.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Beautiful GG! Perfect illustration of the fact that you can just take off and fly to somewhere remote where you would normally never come.

    From this morning on our heliport...

    A simple point and shoot from my iPhone ;) The clouds were so pretty today and the air was crisp and fresh.

    @DJM48: Thank you :)

    @Joost: That is so true! Hopefully you are having a great springtime.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

     

     

    Made in France...

    ...like so many luxury goods! My first impressions of my new Cup 2s: they are visually beautiful on the rim and the car seems to have an even meaner look now. smiley

    The tire feedback is exactly as you want it to be-- precise! I was not able to push them yet since they were just installed yesterday, but so far I'm very happy with them. The Porsche dealer filled them with nitrogen tire gas and added new pressure sensors together with black valve stems and black Porsche valve caps. And yes, black sticky weights for balancing to maintain a sleek look ;)

    The major 4 year service was completed as well and thankfully there were no issues. My only grievance is that Porsche service charges have gone through the roof and seem to follow the ever increasing new car prices :(

    Anyway, I can't wait for the next drive :)

    The Mojave Desert...

    ...as seen from one of the last snowy patches up at 10,000 feet on the San Gabriel Mountains. Right now Southern California is experiencing blistering heat, which seems even more intense because the weather changed from relatively cold to super hot basically overnight.

    @BjoernB:  I think the Cup 2s are now operating at perfect surface temperatures and the GT3's air-condition system is keeping Mrs. Pilot comfortable no matter the weather. kiss

    Lovely photo as always


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

     

     

    Just in time...

    ...for father and daughter's day ;) We got up very early to catch the sunrise at Griffith Observatory, but apparently the fog had the same idea haha. I have never experienced the observatory at sunrise and driving through the foggy Griffith Park was so nice. The only people up there when we arrived were the park rangers and some locals doing their morning hike and exercise. Normally during the day it gets very busy, but we got to enjoy it before all the hustle and bustle.

    While we waited for the fog to lift the temperature kept dropping and it got to the point where I almost had enough and wanted to call it quits. Thankfully we stayed and the warm morning sun finally came out as our reward. It's amazing how a bit of sunshine can change everything-- suddenly we were surrounded by brilliant colors and it became pleasantly warm. After a few hours of shooting photos we decided to enjoy our packed breakfast. My daughter fixed a picnic of bagel sandwiches, fruits, pretzels and cookies which we enjoyed right next to the building on the front steps while watching everything come to life right before our eyes.

    As you probably know, Griffith was used in quite a few movies, including "Rebel Without a Cause" with James Dean and "Terminator." There is a commemorative statue of James Dean as a tribute to Griffith's link to Hollywood and you can see the Hollywood sign from the front lawn as well.

    All photo credits go to my daughter! I really love the way she captured this amazing morning. In the photo below you can spot a wedding couple who used Griffith as their backdrop for their photos. The bride was very beautiful; she must have been freezing in her white dress at the beginning of their shoot, but I'm sure their photos and videos turned out great.

    ... and here is the photographer blush

    A typical "Pilot" shot you might say ;) She has grown into a beautiful woman who still designs her own dresses. Daddy is very proud of his daughter and so is her mom! cool

    Haha, fantastic shots again GG! You daughter is a talented woman.

    My nieces (7 & 9) keep telling me they want to organize "Uncle's day" next year (in the spirit of Father's day), so I can only hope they'll make it just as special as your daughter did!

    From my flight this morning...

    ...and shot with my iPhone which almost got sucked out through the window.

    It was very peaceful and calm, with early signs of autumn at least by California standards. The color of the ocean reminds me of our Sydney vacations-- it is the Pacific, after all. It's crazy to think that it is mostly water between here and there.

    RC, my daughter says thank you for your compliment!
