I got up before dawn today, rousted Jay out of bed to take me to the airfield and lit out for home at first light, and a good thing, too: I felt the deteriorating weather nipping at my heels the whole way to Colorado. Jay, driving back to Phoenix, reported winds gusting to 50 and a sky obscured with blowing dust an hour or two after I departed. I saw plenty of blowing dust myself: the whole north end of the San Luis Valley was obscured and Ship Rock was enveloped in a wall of dust that reached up from

Steve, if you turn this one into something that you are happy with, I'd like to put a copy on my mountain home. It reminds me of racing in Utah and has a great story behind it.

I think it will print well and I can clone out the wing, but I'll get back to you, David. When you say 'on my mountain home', how big are we talking?

Butch stopped by HQ this morning to ask me if I wanted to fly the King Air to Kansas with him, returning late tomorrow or Wednesday morning. Couldn't do it due to assignments, but I pictured the weather we'd be coming home in and double passed on that opportunity.

Beautiful day in Md so I slipped out to the airport to see what was going on this afternoon - drove up as the Army Chinook was leaving - turned out the only reason it had been here 3 days is that it had mechanical problems -- with the arrangement of the planes on the tarmac, wasn't able to shoot much of what was there leaving .. did find the following though ..

Eclipse EA500






United States of America - ARMY ( How do you find registry on gov planes )?

These folks are going to have a good resume for the corporate world I imagine - young man in the pilot seat, young lady co-pilot.












Then this " catfish " was at the other end of the airport waiting on passangers - took on a ton of fuel - when this big ole tinted SUV pulled onto the ramp - engines immediately started ..

2007 PIAGGIO P180 registered out of Clearwater, Fl


















and the one that got away .. topped off with 500 gallons .........






and this one was out and about in the morning the Flight Line told me, but I was out of town - missed it too ;(

I'll tell you what, Kevin Eldridge and I have been friends for a couple of decades and that guy is one sharp stick, but he's blessed with nine lives as well. I photographed him bailing out of the Super Corsair at the Phoenix 500 Air Races in the early 90's. He caught his foot in between the seat and the canopy rail, was 90% out in the slip stream with the Corsair trailing 100' of orange flame and black smoke, broke a number of things as he got bashed against the fuselage, managed to get free as the plane plummeted

I was in the Merlin Magic pit and filmed it as well, from a distance it still wasn't pretty...

Thanks, Jim. This one is a 'spray and pray' gift from heaven. I shot it blind and one-handed out the right side window, with my wrist resting on the camera bag I had strapped in the passenger seat. Mostly, I was just hoping the camera wouldn't fly out of my hand and hit the cabin ceiling. There wasn't a lot of light, either. How's that saying go: 'ISO 1600 and be there'?

I think the D800's high bit-depth sensor deserves a lot of credit: there was very little contrast in the scene, but superior bit depth allows it to be teased out in post.

One does not like to hear that a camera bag in the right seat is more helpful than a friend...

The D800 is amazing for sure, but then so are the eyes and hands that guided it to that exposure! I absolutely love the subtle tones in that composition. I think your two Shiprock images might be my favorites in all of your vast store of incredible imagery. And, that's not even taking the "life threateningness" of this latest work of art!

Jay, I'm sure Zim meant no offense, it's very distracting to have TWO people in the aircraft screaming while you are trying to take pictures..........

How's that old joke go? " I want to die like my uncle, peacefully, in my sleep. Not screaming and crying like the other people who were in the car with him!"
