Great 5* capture here Gary. Is this a new spot that you found here Gary? I could be wrong (due to not being familiar with the area and scenery) but I don't remember you posting a shot from this spot before.

Excellent shot, Gary! Seen in Daily Newsletter!

Dwight and Mark, Thanks once again to both of you for your comments.
Mark, this spotting location is one of 18 spotting points around RNO and it is one of the best for either presunrise or for late afternoon/early evening snaps. I've posted several that were taken from this spot; it is just the position of this particular inbound and the buildings on Turbo Circle / Spitfire Court in the background that make this scene seem a bit unfamiliar to you. (My click of a SW approaching past Rattlesnake Mtn was taken from this same spot.)
