One of my favorite work assignments is going up in a light plane to photograph a subject from an eagle's prospective. Earlier this month, I was in the air over Duluth to get photos of several different buildings. Each location required at least two passes to ensure I captured the images I needed. As we looped around to line up for the next pass, we flew over either the lake or the harbor. The different views of ice and water beneath the plane caught my eye, and I couldn't resist blowing through a lot of pixels to capture the sight.
