Nice work!

Looks like you and Jay were dancing cheek to cheek.

Yup!
Jay's Southwest shot is very nice...he had the 2x on his 500mm plus the extra crop on the 1D mk4. I was handheld with my 500mm plus 1.4 ext on full frame. LOT of post crop on mine!

Hi Guys...

Contrary to popular belief, I am still alive and kicking - Or at least alive... Can't kick until the surgeon has practised replacing my left hip in preparation in having ago at the right one too!

I am hoping to be able to get to White Ensign day at Yeovilton with Rich & Nick this year, if I get the operations done in time.

The only flying attached to the gritty images below, was that I flew to Italy to get them!

A little touch of SilverEfex...

Hey, where's Lady Jo? I'm getting worried about her. And how about Sir Donald?


Jim, All,

Just to let you know that I hit the panic button this afternoon. Donald just checked in by text about 15 minutes ago. I do know that there has been a lot of snow down where he lives. He knows about our concern.


I was most touched by your concerns. Thank you all.

Yes, we have had a goodly amount of the white stuff & we were snowed in yesterday... Today the temperature rose to +4c and the snow has almost gone.

My apologies for my extended absence. I have had no aviation photos to show. I have been busy doing home repairs and many other things. I have also been heavily involved with the other passion in my life, Namely Freemasonry and it looks like the next couple of years will be quite demanding...

Thank you, young James,
I have missed you all too. I am now busy playing catchup and working my way backward through a few hundred pages that I have missed. - I cant remember when I last posted but I have been to Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Germany - I also had a problem with the list owner and I got the sulks!

But I am over it now - I shall lurk until I have something that I think is worthy to present.

I truly believe I am among friends here - Thanks to you all.

More Phantom photos: it's amazing what you can get to fly, if you just provide enough thrust!

My definition:

What is grief? It is the manifestation of love that cannot be expressed directly to that departed loved one. Grieving is part of saying "Farewell dear one, I love you and will cherish the memory of every moment we had together."

Thank you Jim for sharing your love with us.



Donald, you mean a lot to us here. I am reminded of your very touching post when Glenn was killed. Like so many here, your participation and personality adds the flavor that makes this all work. I personally don't care if you're shooting lampposts or trash cans, come and be with us when you are able. Glad you are well. When you get all your new hardware installed, you'll run circles around those guys!

I cannot find the words. Thank you seems so inadequate - I guess you know what I mean,

Donald, Jim said it all. Those hips, will make you almost whole again.
I really like the character in those portraits. Now, that's curly hair.
Good to see you.
Tom

Well done all around, Jo: good camera angles, nicely edited for an aviation audience, cockpit audio adds a lot, and the music is well chosen, too.


Thanks, Steve!
