    Nice Pics,
    Especially the first three where there is such a contrast in colors from the sunset to the ball fields. Makes you wonder why we don't have more color on ball fields other than just turf green. Synthetic turf would tend to be color adaptable. I have seen blue turf. Seems we don't really appreciate color and it shows that we cannot compete with mother natures display of such rich vibrant colors.

    You are lucky. In Australia, we are not allowed to fly at night and near crowds of people.

    These were all taken less than 30 minutes after official sunset. I didn't fly over people to get these shots. When I come in I fly with my camera down and find a clear path to wear I'm over no one or no one would walk under me.

    Changed this post because you are not in violation of FAA flight rules and I wanted to make it right. Again, your pics are awesome.
    Be careful and fly SAFE!

    I cant believe it.. You made me shed a tear. I have never ever had anyone say I was right on this site. I usually just get threatened because I speak up about rules. Thank you.

    I also don't fly above press boxes even though they are covered.

    What limit are you referring to? Every pic that I posted was taken before 30 minutes after official sunset.

    Do you mind if I ask what kind of Anti-collision lights you're using. Trying to look for a good pair, haven't found one I like yet.

    I have tried a couple different lights and methods of fixture, but velcro and Zecto Drive Pro has worked fine.

    Got it! Thanks! Do you have it on the nose and tail or where are you placing it?

    Actually I have one on both. I prefer the nose, but of late I've been flying with both.

    No. You would be suprised at the distance they are visable though.
