Quicksilver GT Ultralight on Flickr.
Seen at the Cracker Fly-In: July 5, 2014 - Gainesville, GA
Founded by Dick Eipper, Eipper Formance began manufacturing Quicksilver ultralights in the late 1970s when hang gliding was very popular. The Quicksilver hang gliders differed from most hang gliders of that time period in that the Quicksilver had a rigid wing and a tail with a horizontal stabilizer and a rudder. The earliest powered version, the Quicksilver C, was created as a self-launching hang glider designed to allow pilots who lived in the flatlands the ability to self-launch without a hill. The design later evolved into an ultralight aircraft for powered cross country flying.

Ferarris and Corvettes
This show is billed as the biggest in the Southeast. I think I believe it! There were people everywhere and the cars seemed almost endless.
Freeport: A working harbor on Flickr.
The cruise ships that come into port at Freeport, Bahamas are treated not to pastel-colored tourist shops but a true, working harbor. Here you see some of the commercial ships and a glorious sunrise.

Camelot Lavendar Foxglove on Flickr.
(Digitalis purpurea ‘Camelot Lavender’)
The tall spikes of this plant produce beautiful light-purple tubular flowers with spots on the interior. Be careful with this though because the leaves and flowers contain a toxin (digitalis). A group of medicines called Digitalin, used primarily to treat heart conditions, are extracts of the foxglove.

Beautiful pink azaleas at Gibbs Gardens. Another of the many pleasures encountered when walking the path from the gardens to the manor house. This area is full of azaleas and rhododendron.

Spring colors on Flickr.
Once again, golden hour light produces the best images. The colors pop out and the details of the crinkly petals of this poppy really stand out during the twilight hours.
