Nice work Brian. That last one with the "corpuscular" rays (credit to Zim) is wonderful.

Tip of the hat to Glenn. Not only does he quietly, but unceasingly polish is talent, he does the hard work of knocking on doors, not succumbing to the temptation to shoot for free (and that we all know that is a very difficult fence to straddle) to get the experience. He deserves a pat on the back for his diligence, and I think he just got one from the Collings Foundation.

Those of you who hang your cameras here in The Great State of Texas, know what a beautiful day this Easter Sunday turned out to be. I launched out in the Cub mid afternoon and could not convince myself to land (except for 12 gallons of 100LL at SWI), until a few minutes ago. Warm temps, visibility to Lubbock, and light winds, enhanced further by the vivd early spring green bathed in beautiful light........it was wonderful! I love that little yellow airplane.


Quick correction: those are "crepuscular" rays, Jim.

Absolutely agree with you about Glenn. His double-V tail shots add an exclamation point to an incredible week's worth of A2A work.

Easter Sunday was equally beautiful here in Colorado: just not as green.

Thanks to Larry and ISnAP design guru Kevin Hong for doing an extra special job on Glenn's article. Text not withstanding, I think it's the most beautiful issue yet! Congratulations Glenn! Well deserved!!


The March and April 2013 ISnAP issues are the best ever IMHO. Let me add my kudos to Larry and Kevin - great job gentlemen. These issues are also special because MA2A alumni are prominently featured. Well done Jim, Glenn and Mike. BTW, the written word in both issues was pretty darn good Jim

Thank you Jeff! Just fueling up a JetRanger for another round of aerials, it's an incredible day here in The Lone Star, with rain moving in this evening so I gotta hustle.

Don't know if an outsider was suppose to have access to the ISnAP Mag, so thanks for letting me sneak a peak! You know it's a great article when the story, writing and illustrations are equally superb! Great job Jim and Glenn!

Jim, your already a TOP DOG photographer but I'd be watching my six with Glenn around. Glenn, you've done some bad azz work lately and it's absolutely beautiful my friend, keep heading the direction your going. ( but keep an eye on shooter as well )

This thread always delivers, but I can never keep up with it! Just over a month until the first airshow of the year for me, I can't wait! This was from the show last year, the tail is soft probably due to using a 70-200 with a cheap 2.0tc on a 1Ds2 and the angle of shot? I still haven't got a proper long lens, but now also have a 7D again so hopefully will be using the sweet spot...

Props all around for a great ISnAP Issue!

Heard from EAA and Crosswind Images will be present again at Oshkosh in 2013!

Something from 2011 washed through Nik HDR. Wish I'd shot just one more frame a stop darker to hold back the sun hole just a little more. Need to go look at original frames to see where the strange wave effect is coming from above the left wing tip. <headscratch>

"Tower this is little bird, too much ice/snow on the wings. Request permission to return to hanger. On second thought, I request permission to just park it here"

Found this display of what looks like a flyable aircraft in the middle of an apartment complex in Fairbanks AK

Hi Bill!

He is excellent isn't he! I have a strong suspicion that GW has my Six, in a good way. I'm excited for him, he deserves it. Besides, if your competition isn't the best of the best, what is going to keep you sharp?

Man! If I was an aspiring aviation photographer, and opened up this thread, I'd either think I found Mecca, or walk out onto the freeway, not sure which! Seriously, stop and think of the depth of talent that resides here, it's just amazing.

Never been from London to Manchester, .....before a few minutes ago. Very cool Mr. McGrath!

Welcome back JJ, looking forward to seeing your images during the upcoming season.

Welcome back Dan. That's a shame that the little Champ is earthbound.

Just got back to KTKI. It's clear and a million with the sock hanging. Could be my imagination, but I think the Cub is calling me. Two days in a row, if it happens, that's a record for 2013! Bryan is working the late shift, I might just have to get his numbers up...
