An evening flight after work.
A ragged layer of clouds had formed over South Haven near the Lake Michigan shoreline and I climbed above them to practice some air work (steep turns, etc).
Warrior 481 and I cruised along the shoreline, stretching our wings.
Turning directly into the sun, human eye and camera CCD both saturated, rendering the view in sepia.
As the sun settled closer to the horizon, a magical angle was reached at which the clouds radiated golden sunlight.
As the sun continued its downward trajectory in the heavens, I maneuvered Warrior 481 for a dusk landing at South Haven.
