This past Sunday I managed to take a windy, mid-November flight to Campbell River. For most of the first leg up the Sunshine coast we faced 25-30 knot headwinds from around 330°M but did manage to enjoy the same winds on the return leg. I took a bunch of photos on both legs, mostly of the cool cloud formations brought out by the two weather systems meeting in the area.

That headwind! Doing 105 knots indicated
I think my phone might have added some HDR here, but looks cool nonetheless

We met the strong winds again, but this time in our favour!
