Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to the next round of the EAA Sport Aviation magazine photo contest!
We'll be posting the top ten photos submitted for the February issue in a photo gallery on the main EAA website sometime this week ... but you'll have to wait and see the magazine for yourself to see who won!
In the meantime, start sending in your submissions for March!
As before, here's how it all works:
- First, you’ll take a great photo, one that evokes the spirit of aviation. Feel free to include a caption or any other notes about the setting, subject matter, etc. The "spirit of aviation" is a broad definition - show us pictures OF aircraft, pictures taken FROM aircraft, people thinking ABOUT aircraft ... well, as long as it's obvious ... anyway, you get the idea.
- Then, you’ll reply to this thread and embed the picture in your post.
- As our deadline approaches each month, the photo submissions will be reviewed by the editorial team (and me!), and we will choose a winner to be published in the magazine (with full and appropriate credit, naturally.)
- We’ll contact the photographer directly to arrange for their submission of a print-quality version of the winning photo (see below.) We’ll also provide the basic legalese at that point to ensure that we have the rights to publish the photo.
There are a few things to point out:
- Note that, above, we said you’ll take the photo – submissions must be made by the original photographer.
- While we will be choosing the winners ourselves, we are, in fact, human beings, and certainly wouldn’t ignore a picture if it had an unusually high “thumbs-up” count or a lot of positive comments here in the forum.
- Photos must be posted here to be considered – email submissions will not be accepted.
- In addition, the pictures you post here will be automatically resized for web viewing, which means they won’t be of a high-enough resolution for print. So, in order for your picture to be considered for publication, you must be able to provide a high resolution print-ready version on request.
- This means that the original should ideally be 8 Megapixels (~3264 x 2448) or higher.
Enter as many pictures as you like – the more the merrier! (Though we prefer it if you include just one picture per post.)
The deadline for submissions to the March, 2010 issue is
January 22, 2010.

My friend was practicing simulated instrument approaches at the Region of Waterloo International Airport in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, Canada in a Cessna 172RG. I was in the right seat acting as his safety pilot. After he looked up on short final, I took this shot, to test my new digital camera. The two white patches just below the horizon at the far left of the photo are the snow-covered "slopes" of the Chicopee Ski Hill, 3 nautical miles southwest of the airport.

Over the Arctic Ocean looking south to Point Barrow.
I took this photo from my Kolb MKIII, July 2004. This was my turn around point on a flight from my grass strip in Titus, Alabama, to Point Barrow, Alaska, and back. This was the third flight to Alaska in my 1992 Kolb (2,990 hours airframe), second to Point Barrow, the northernmost point of the North American Continent.

I'm a little embarassed to admit that it was during AirVenture '09 that I first visited the seaplane base. (after many trips to AirVenture over the years...) What a beautiful place! Dusk was an amazing time to be there. Taken July 29, 2009.

I've received a lot of positive comments about this pic (which I use as my PC desktop), so I thought what the heck, I'll post it here. Taken July 29, 2009 at AirVenture. The "Gentleman Jim" part gets some chuckles when people see my desktop since my first name happens to be Jim...

Yes, "Spirit of Aviation" is a very broad term. For me, nothing can match the spirit generated by the P-51 Mustang. Now while I favor the all out race Mustangs of Reno Air Racing fame, these two stockers will have to do.
