A San Francisco Sunset and A Seattle Sunrise

Taking off from San Francisco can be exhilarating.  Add a low sun with cool lighting and you have the makings of an awesome screenshot.   Once you start to notice the Golden Gate Bridge in the background and downtown’s skyline, you have a piece of art.

It is no wonder sunset and sunrise are the most popular times for flights in flight simulator.  Whether you fly in FSX, P3D, or X-Plane, awesome lighting and memorable moments are all around your virtual world.
