ATC would not let me get any higher as there was Navy traffic in the area.  I wanted to get one straight down but just could not get that lucky.  I have to roll the wings over to do that and at 1200 feet and 80 mph, I would cross over the cemetery  so quickly that I just could not get situated.  I tried holding the camera out the window and shooting down.  All I got was a good shot or two of my left wheel.
