    Norm,

    I've been to Bryon Point as well as to several Lighthouses in Oregon and Washington State in the US. I have to say the Aussie Lighthouses have won me over.

    Any pics you would like to post would appreciated and admired.

    P.S. We have an airman in the neighboring town of Heber Utah who owns a beautiful P-51 and he flys it through Provo canyon into our valley on a regular basis. I love to hear those RR engines when he flys through the canyon.

    Thanks again.

  8. Norm, I love the P-51 very much and you captured this one very well. Stunning color!
     
  9. Sweet ride, all ready to go! :smile: :biggrin:

    Great pic, with saturated colors and the reflection adds to the depth of the image.
