The A-1 Skyraider

There was enough variance in the clouds at this point that I could pull a little interest out of them in ACR. The location of the A-1 on the ramp, it’s color and very cool details under the wing made for more interest. Then there is that prop that just wraps it all up in a nice bow. I just wish that yellow T-6 wasn’t frame left, it pulls the eye away but at least I got a static from the morning I like. 90min of struggle for one image, better than 90min of struggle for no images.
