Tower at BWI had a lightning strike maybe 3 hours ago ....... 2 runways remain open .. FAA employee taken to hospital .......

Think BWI / Baltimore is like 7th busiest in states ...... wonder if there will be any ripple effect ..

I've seen several folks mention that east-bound flights from the west were being held due to Wx in the east. Yes, I'd say there are ripples...

While Ive got you attention guys I need a few opinions.

When I get to Alliance Im tossing up about lenses.
Im bringing my 1D4 & 100/400f5.6, my 5D3 & 70/200F2.8 plus a 1.4TCIII, due to the fact that my 300f2.8 is too heavy to lug to Allen & all the way around Charlotte , LA & Vegas Im thinking about hiring a Lens,
What are the opinions on either a 300f2.8 or a 400

Al


Sorry guys I must have missed it,..been chasing my tail.
Did anyone have an opinion on this Alliance Lens question

I'm arriving on the Wednesday, Al. But if everything's working again with my airplane I'll be arriving by Remos, not by the airlines. My backup plan is still United Airlines and a rental car: the United flight I booked arrives ad DFW at 13:16 on Wednesday and the car is reserved through Monday morning. But I'm sure someone else (Steve2 and Steve3, are you listening?) would be in a position to pick you up from DFW and get you to HQ, for starters.

What Jeff said, Jo!

The Airbus U-turn is my favorite of your current series so far, Jeff!

I'll be coming to TX at 0 AGL and plan to arrive on Wednesday as well. Time TBD though until I'm wheels up from Van Horn that morning. IIRC, last year, I arrived just at lunch time, I think.

Hi Guys and Gals,

I'm going to be a bit scarce for a bit, lot's happening, all more than good. I have secured rooms at the Allen Marriott Courtyard for Wed/Thurs/Mon evenings. There'll be a keyword that will get you the preferred rate. Normal rate is $149, HQ rate should be $119.

I have an annual report shoot early Wednesday morning that will probably take me to noon, then I'll head to HQ for prep. Zim, as always, your spot in the hangar will be spotless and waiting. Glenn, if you would like, I'll put 7PC on the lift and there'll be a spot for your ride as well.

Al, I answered your lens question a while back........go with the 400, you'll have close to 300 with your 70-200 and the 1.4.

Any other questions pertaining to our activities, let me know. Quite possibly, with my workload, that Friday evening will be the only air to air that will include additional photographers.

I have made arrangements for The Spirit of Alliance to be positioned in a discreet spot for some evening lighting and shooting opportunities. This will take some discretion due to the location and the small number of folks who will be included in the opportunity(and you know who you are. More as I know more.

I am going to sell my Comet lights, power packs, reflectors, grids, etc. Power packs are two 2400 watt second four head packs, and two 1200 watt second two head packs. I have at least four heads that I'll sell, a couple more that I need to rebuild and snug screws. These are work horses and still have plenty of umph left. If any of our group has an interest, I'll sell them very reasonably, otherwise the go to B&S for market. Oh yeah, three or four quick release brackets for the heads to attach Chimera boxes.

At least we usually only have sheep n kangaroos around here..
Cant imagine what damage a Moose strike would do...
Friends hit a kangaroo taking off from Griffith in thier 172 a few years ago..lost a damage to the fuselage n tail.

Sounds good, Jim. Please see if you can add Sunday to the Allen Marriott special rate. If I get down there in the Remos, I'll plan to leave it at HQ until Monday morning, and overnight in Allen on Sunday, like last year.

[edit for TOPP: in honor of the fact that the Front Range of Colorado is no longer landlocked (see my earlier posts), here's a sailing photo from Norway, taken in 2008]

Alliance sounds like a blast, I am sorry I am going to miss it this year...again.

Jeff W - Those are some awesome night shots at KPHX. Care to share the technical details? I took a few night shots from the Dover Air Force Base Tower that I will post in the next day or two...I am interested in how to make shots like those pop a little more.

I am slightly underwhelmed by my cameras low light performance.

You know how I love your sailing images Steve. Another one that has me wanting to say "call me Ishmael"

Thanks Andrew. The last shot was a blending of four separate images. The toughest part for me was getting the correct white balance. With all the different colored lights on an active ramp like the US Airways at PHX, I believe getting as close as possible to the correct white balance goes a long way to achieving a little "pop" in the image. Much better that if it had a strong yellow, red, or blue cast. I also only shoot these types of images off a sturdy tripod and with a remote shutter release. I turn off my AF and IS, I manually focus in live view on the LCD using a 10x loop, I typically set the camera (Zim's 5D3) at ISO 100 and f/11. I then dial-down my shutter speed until I achieve an exposure I like on the LCD and histogram. These turned out to be 19-second exposures. Besides the blending fun in CS6, it is mainly old post processing habits in both LR4 and CS6.

A quick flood update. We're doing fine and there's a break in the rain (blue sky!), but a whole lot of folks around Boulder County and points north are under water. More rain in the forecast through the weekend, but I'm hopeful we've seen the worst of it.

I just saw a Chinook pass overhead on its way toward Boulder, no doubt to help with extractions and moving emergency personnel into areas cut off by the flooding.
