Gotta love it when Bryan is in the tower. I head out for a shot and all the runway lights come on, pilots are instructed to light up, he gets rotation estimates for me, what a guy!

I like this wide-angle Global shot best of all your recent series of KTKI takeoffs, Jim.

When you go wide, does your viewfinder give you the old "WARNING: Jets May Be Closer Than They Appear"?

By the way, I'm not having any Photoshop glitches like you are in Mavericks. Well, not if you don't count the warning: "There appears to be a problem with your Creative Cloud subscription", then it works anyway. Gonna have to figure that one out, soon. Yeah, maybe tomorrow. Or next year.

I've not upgraded my Macbook Air to Mavericks yet, but could it be a graphics driver issue?

I also get a black strip that blocks the file name in the saving mode. Very annoying. I suppose it will vanish with an update at some point, but it's directly connected to PS/Mavericks.

Contrary to popular belief, I and still alive and kicking! I havent posted for a heck of a long time but just wanted to let you all how much I enjoy looking at your photos.

I don't manage to do any aviation stuff these days other than once a year with Nick & Rich at Yeovilton.

I have managed however, to still keep up some interest in aerial photography. Some time ago, I saw a timelapse of Lady Jo's shed being assembled, taken with a GoPro Hero camera. I invested in a GoPro Hero3 as a 'fun' camera... love it!

I have mounted the camera to a small drone and learning to fly it aloft. You can blame Lady Jo, it is all her fault! Here is a little look at our village:

A blame that I will happily accept, if it results in things like this! Nice one, Donald, and a pretty village you have there


Ooh, top of page. Let's set the wayback machine for several years ago, when this SPAD XIII was about to be finished down at Kingsbury. They wanted it photographed before it got covered up. They brought in the big guns for this (Phil Makanna) but I got to go play as well

I really like the uncovered views of the Spad, Jo. It's not very often that you get to see what planes look like when uncovered.

Great photographs of the Spad Jo. As Colin said, it really shows of the craftsmanship and detail that ultimately is hidden under the fabric. Don't kid yourself, I'm betting Makanna was looking over your shoulder from time to time - just to see what Lady Jo was shooting

I'm about 15 pages behind because I've been shooting more horse competitions. Between now and spring I'll do about 8 total. Nothing like people wanting about 2 thousand photos taken over multiple days to be processed and posted the same day. :-) I'm livin' at ISO 10,200 almost constantly. This gig would not have been possible without the D4’s great high ISO performance, big f/2.8 glass, and Lightroom's noise reduction.

Nice, Erich!

Ah, the joys of event photography. I shot a musical theater performance in early September and created a photo book for the cast; 34 people ordered books. During the time it took me to get the order in, my supplier changed pricing on me. Twice (and not in my favor, of course). After weeks of no communications (the website said my order was "in Process"; it still does) they shipped 31 books instead of 34; customer service rep in some far-off land said they knew it and that another 3 books were coming under separate cover (there was no way for me to tell without calling Bangladore). Another singer wanted a book, so I had to order a singleton copy. The supplier sent out one package with four copies...and another with a single copy. Meanwhile, my clients don't all have the books they paid for and they won't meet again until after the holidays.

Ah, the joys of event photography.

What are you mounting the GoPro on Donald? Beautiful village. I have long been amazed and impressed by your ever expanding use of technology. Nothing seems to intimidate you, and good on Ya for that!!

Nice to see you back again Donald! Have you had the other side done yet, or are you still going round in circles?
Super fun video of Gray Towers and the serf's accommodation. Has the Butler's cabin got a roof yet?

This seems like a very cool set up and the reviews of the Gimbal are very positive.........…


A member of our AzAP continent has a Phantom and likes it very much. From the videos I've seen him produce thus far, it appears to be a very stable and effective platform.

Jim, on the subject of Donald and technology. Some time ago, I was invited to view a part of Gray Towers that few get to see. Now Sir Donald called the room “The Study” - well, not so much an understatement – more a lack of appropriate words. Let me see – how about Museum / Communications Centre / Electronics Development Lab / Light, Mid-size and Heavy Engineering Workshop / Main Store depot for “Parts R Us” - oh, and there is a desk and chair and books (LOTS of books) so I guess it is a study as well.
In short, the English Tourist Board wanted to list it as an official attraction, but where unable to come up with a suitable classification.

Donald, I really enjoyed your video; isn't the Phantom a kick? What's the odd structure/lean-to near the car park at the edge of the soccer...er, football pitch?
