Boeing 757-200 (N408UP) - The sun had popped up over the crest of the Virginia Range Mountains behind my position and was lighting up Mt. Rose in the Sierra Nevada as well as the suburban area southwest of downtown Reno when UPSs N408UP, a B757-200, departed RTIA and climbed out from runway 16R to begin a flight to Des Moines (KDSM), IA.

Those ski runs were still deserted at 7:45 AM when I captured this click of N408UP on the climb, but the skiers were out on those slopes in large numbers less than 90 minutes later. It was a gorgeous day for skiing .... AND for spotting. ;-)

Very nice, Gary!

Hi Gary!!

Thanx, Greg. This definitely isn't the pic I intended to post, but I did not notice that I selected the wrong one and that it was uploading until it appeared afterwards. Nothing I can do about it now except send a request that it be deleted. AND ... be way more careful in the future. (Grin)

Hey, Uwe, how have you been, my friend? :-) TY for the comment. You are correct about the background, but as I just commented to Greg in my reply, this pic was erroneously uploaded.
I posted a low-light shot last week. It was a "before sunrise" snap. The a/c was landing, just about to touch down, but because it was airborne and moving, I needed a shutter speed that was fast enough to avoid blur, yet I also had to permit more ambient light. The shot came out OK.

Hi Gary, you may of accidentally uploaded, but I think you should leave it because it looks great and I think that many others would agree as you already have 3 votes (4 with mine) and they are all 5 stars.

Ditto to the comments above, love the shot and thanks...Sam

Gary, if my mistakes were this good I wouldn't have to worry about them anymore! Take care, eh!
