It is my biggest dream to live in Miami in the next five years. What an amazing, global city.

Just wait until you see what it looks like in the next five years. We're not done here just yet. Things have just cooled down abit. I have an ultralight tour of the skyline scheduled for this morning at 11:00. I probably won't be able to get to sleep thinking about it since it's already 1:45. I'm hoping to catch some kiteboarders in midair while I'm up there. I called a buddy to see if he and he friends couldn't coordinate it for my flyover if they want some pictures.

Well, skyscraper or construction or not, Miami is a wonderful city. The culture cannot be found anywhere else in America.

The construction cranes are just an added bonus

A rainstorm moved in right after takeoff, which made this a lot more difficult with the turbulence. I hadn't planned to do the extended tour over South Beach (which costs me an extra 25 bucks), but we had to in order to dodge the storm. A lot of pics came out blurred, but I just kept shooting trying to get as many as I could that worked.

That is only a piece of what I took from air. We had to fly over South Beach because of the rainstorm. That wasn't part of the plan, but I got some great aeriels of South Beach. My full ultralight tour starts on page 14 of QuantumPX on SkyscraperCity, which is down right now.

It's interesting how when you study everything that is in some of the pics, you can actually see how my pilot and I are circumnagivating this rainstorm.

Stunning shots, New.

As an aside, I always think it's spooky the way you can see the bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Thanks, Dale! It only goes to show how shallow Biscayne Bay really is, but that is also how clear it is.

What was really spooky to me though is here I am taking my first flight on an ultralight, making my first attempt at aerial photography, and I takeoff in a rainstorm. How do you roll up the windows in one of those things?

I'm glad the Biscayne Wall was built w/o that one built behind the freedom Tower. Hopefully, when all is good to build more, that one will not happen. Building practically upon THE Miami landmark is totally a no in my book.
