Anyone think it's a coincidence that when America is weakened, the bullies start to get brave around the world? Think about it...........

Robert Arthur Boyd was born yesterday at 1:11 pm. Baby and mom are doing wonderful. So thankful that The Lord blessed us with another healthy son.


Warner, congratulations to you and your wife! This is your second, I believe? How is big brother doing with his new sibling?

I'm a little late chiming in, but I wouldn't rush to make travel plans just yet Erich - it is Labor Day Weekend, 2015.

I don't have much aviation to share, but Jim's mention of red tailed hawks reminded me of our neighborhood family.

Their nest is about 100 feet up in a pine tree, but that's at the foot of our hill, putting our house at about the same elevation. Unfortunately the nest is about 450 feet away, with some tree branches in between. Managed this shot of the chick (known as an eyas) in the nest below the adult with my iPhone through my spotting scope eyepiece, probably around 30x-40x.


And this is him about 7 weeks later, just before he left the neighborhood to set out on his own:

Doing well Glenn, thank you. Been reading along every day, but crazy busy. This spring our daughter graduated high school (our last one), so prom, graduation, parties, etc. Weird feeling. Now need to pay for another 4 years of college for her......yikes.

Glenn, your work out of Offutt has been awesome! I love every image. Been sharing them with some folks at work (Lockheed Martin is a major client of ours, so the F-22 and the Lightning were great to see together). And I can brag, "I know that guy".

I had to go pretty far just to make it somewhat interesting so bare with me Although not an airplane it at least was the first "carrier" as it launched the first airplane at sea!



Billy
You'll need to explain more:
Eugene Ely made the first fixed-wing aircraft take-off from a warship from USS Birmingham on 14 November 1910. On 9 May 1912 Commander Charles Samson became the first man to take off from a ship which was underway when he flew his Short S.27 off of HMS Hibernia, which was steaming at 10.5 kn (12.1 mph; 19.4 km/h). Later, removable "flying-off platforms" appeared on the gun turrets of battleships and battlecruisers starting with HMS Repulse, allowing aircraft to be flown off for scouting purposes, although there was no chance of recovery.
Wikipedia says about USS Texas "In 1919 Texas became the first U.S. battleship to launch an aircraft and served as a plane guard and navigational reference for the first trans-Atlantic flight by the seaplane NC-4" and elsewhere it says she was the first US warship to launch a plane by catapult. I doubt I'll ever get to Galveston (although we are changing flights in Dallas Ft Worth in 6 weeks time) but I sort of collect Great War warships - I have yet to visit HMS Caroline in Belfast but have been to the WW1 Monitor in Portsmouth UK, HMS President on the Thames in London, the two UK Coastal Motor Boats and the Greek heavy cruiser Georg Averoff viz.

JR and I are refreshing our scuba skills and gear in anticipation of spending time in some neat diving locales around the world. The kids are showing an interest in snorkeling. I gave Faith and Halle a little surface based primer in what breathing from a scuba tank is like. We have a trip to Jamaica planned and I think they'll love snorkeling where you can actually see some cool stuff. As soon as Aquatech morphs their D800 case into a D810 version, I'm going to add one.

Has anyone messed around with the Nikon AW1? Looks like it might be a relatively inexpensive temporary solution to hostile environment shooting.

BTW, Steven, your D810 images looked good. I have been so swamped that all I have had time to do is unbox it and set my custom functions. How do you like it so far? I was going to shoot a project with it last week, but I decided to stay with my existing workflow until I've had some time to explore it's capabilities.

I'm pretty happy with the GoPro3 so far for hostile enviroments for money cant beat it. I mounted it to a 4ft piece of pvc pipe and dove everywhere with it. It was nice to get the camera out in front of stuff, in small openings in the reef, behind fish, etc.

D800 certainly excels in other shooting environments though!
