Can you link to more info, Shooter? Since my wife's an MD, I like to stay abreast of any changes in policy.

Hi Mark: Is that a simulator or the real deal?

Rare sight in Mesa, AZ. The Superstitions covered in snow. It was a very odd day...snow, lighting, hail, rain, biggest double rainbow I've ever seen, entire sky was bright orange at sunset.
And I decided to do a panorama that will print approx 22 feet wide!
Anyone need art for a large conference room?

Hi Mike,

Hi Rob,

That pano is beautiful! I saw that you guys were getting every conceivable form of wx, and figured there would be some dramatic opportunities for all the talent that resides in the great state of AZ.

On a technical note, did you shoot the segments in portrait mode, or landscape. Any special head? I've been looking into pano gear for a couple of assignments, but I'm more confused about the technique/tools than I was when I started.

Again, remarkable composition and technical work. That would be absolutely breathtaking in 22' form!

A couple of days ago it was bumping 80 here. This morning I finished up a shoot in sleet and 39 degrees. Never boring.

Hi David,

Isn't it amazing that common sense can't find it's way into any facet of the political spectrum? Can you buy a jumbo sized Snickers in NY? Can you buy a big steak? Can you buy a carton of Marlboros? Why would you draw a line with a soft drink? And, just where in the heck do you stop drawing lines once you have insinuated yourself into the citizenry's private lives? Maybe we should have a federal "cash for coke" program where we use tax dollars to buy soft drinks back from the public for multiples of it's street value? Now that sounds like something our braniacs in DC would go for.

Be careful Jim, because we don't want to give DC any more ideas. I think it is time to vote them out, but what goes back in may be even worse.

If Sequestration does occur, Alabama's Governor Bentley is predicting that 40,000 people would lose their jobs, and that is just short term, because we all now that these cuts will affect other businesses in the long run.

For what it is worth, I have never believed we were in a recession. I honestly think that we are in the midst of a new Great Depression. If not, than we are very close to it.

Thats the real deal mate. The blue on the windows is due to it being shot around dawn.

It's a stunning shot, Mark. How did you talk your way into the cockpit with a camera for takeoff?

Beautiful pano, Rob. I'd also like to hear how the shot was composed and what gear you used.

No talking / string pulling required.
At the time that photo was taken, I was one of the few company employees who was flight deck authorised for travel due to the nature of what was my then job.

Gorgeous pano Rob!

I shot this last evening while waiting for the sunset to develop. I had to beg for a bit of forgiveness from my wife for being home late for dinner.

Lovely colors and texture in the sky on this one, Leo. Any chance you can produce an image that is framed in between the final and the original pano? Would love to see how that looks.

Ha! I've probably told this before, but it reminds me of the first time I came the USA, and I had the window seat about 40,000ft over the north west US as we flew towards Texas. I looked out of the window just in time to see a loose formation of four B-2s fly past, about 10,000 feet below. That was quite a welcome :-)
