How is it Sunny in Winter? Spotting @ KROC

Hello community!

I don’t have an intro, but here’s two photos I’ve taken recently at KROC.

Sun came out for the entire day for the first time in a couple of months, so naturally I had to go spotting. Canyon Blue @Luke_Sta

Andrew didn’t call me out, 0/10, would not recommend.

For legal purposes, this is a joke and is not meant to be taken seriously.


oof, removing my like now, bad topic indeed

For legal reasons this is obviously a continuation of @Thunderbolt’s joke and shouldn’t be taken seriously, very good shots!
