After departing Liberia, Costa Rica, on a trip to Newark, NJ, last week, I had the opportunity to get a shot of a volcano in Nicaragua. This particular volcano is on an island in Lake Nicaragua and is called Concepcion. According to information I found on this volcano, its peak is usually covered by clouds and this shot proves that to be accurate. What a cool sight!

I must say that my job offers the opportunity to see incredible sunrises and sunsets. Here's a shot of the sun setting last night during our flight from Liberia, Costa Rica, to Newark, NJ. The oranges and yellows were brilliant, and the sun certainly didn't fail to please us as you can clearly see from the attached photos! What a great way to end the day. Sometimes you just KNOW there's a God!

Usually I wouldn't post a photo like this, but for whatever reason, it seemed "right" to me. The combination of the lines, sunset, and light just made this photo click for me. Anyways, this little piece of metal costs approximately $800,000 plus installation bringing it to a whopping $1 MILLION per B-737. These "winglets" as they're called, help to save 2-5% of our fuel burn. On average, it takes about 3.5 years to pay for the winglets through the fuel savings. Pretty neat!

Just ran across this shot I took a few months ago at South Beach, in Miami. These seagulls always remind me of a guy who's just about bald, but has the little "fringe" growing around his head. I'm sure after seeing the photo, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. ;-)

Every day fewer and fewer "CONTINENTAL" logo planes are flying. It's sad to see such an incredible airline literally vanish before our very eyes. Luckily, I've taken hundreds of photos of the planes from this great airline. It was quite an honor to fly CONTINENTAL planes for the past 13 years. This photo was taken last winter....hence all the "white" powder from snow removal efforts.

During a recent visit to Mexico City (MEX), it became quite evident that they have a SERIOUS over crowding problem, especially in the eastern part of the city. Here's two shots I took recently upon departing Mexico's main airport. What's incredible is how you can mail a letter from Northern Alaska, to a small hut in Mexico City, and it'll actually find its way!
