New binders for the Camaro. Had the V8 brakes put on my V6 with aftermarket rotors.

For the MotoGP contingent, here's a gallery of the latest shots from the Qatar GP under the lights.

That is as big as they make them. Even at that you have to be very careful with the back spacing on wheels to clear the calipers.

Well that's not so much fun. Looking at the spokes it makes sense I suppose. The brakes on our EVO fill the wheels pretty nice (not as much as a 458, but the 458 has a lot more wheel to work with too)

Oh, yeah: Jay and I will go out tomorrow over the red rock country around Page and see how many flash cards we can fill with four cameras between us. Today I flew down to Chandler from my home in Colorado. It should have been a milk run, but yesterday's benign conditions gave way to a whole heap of wind. It was a headwind, of course: 30-40 mph on the nose most of the way down, with the GPS occasionally claiming peak headwinds of up to 80 mph. We'll take that with a grain of salt, thanks, but there's no denying that a flight which should have taken less than six hours tallied nearly eight hours on the Hobbs. I got beat up pretty badly by turbulence, too, at times; not to mention having to cross a number of high ridges against the wind in rotor turbulence and wave.

Not an ideal day to open the door and shoot air-to-ground but, hey, do you want the shot or not? I came across these colorful mudstones in eastern AZ, miles from anywhere.

Oh Boy Zim! Been there, done that, minus the high ridges which would give me a pucker factor off the charts. Hope the rest of the weekend goes wonderfully!

Mark's tip on the Movi 3 axis gimbal led me on a merry chase through all the UAV products that are out there. The footage some of those people get is incredible, but I have a problem getting fired up to spend ten or twelve grand on gear, then hang another ten from that, and spend on batteries and my skills with joysticks to keep it all from ending up in a pile of rubble.

Those wheels and calipers look great on your ride Tim.

Zim, I think I found myself in that area of eastern AZ years ago, on the ground. Interesting colors and topography.

I've got an assignment to shoot a new bridge in Dallas this evening. It's one I have been wanting to shoot for stock, but I waited long enough that someone is going to pay me to shoot stock.........um, better yet! Problem is, I have to be standing in the absolute worst area of the city at dusk and after. Let's see, white guy, standing in the dark, looking through a camera, with thousands of dollars of gear all around him. I think if you wiki that you would see a photo of a sitting duck. That's one of those situations where a CHL gives you some tiny illusion of security, but it's only an illusion.

Off to the wakeboard park for an "air" competition this afternoon. Then downtown for the aforementioned architectural shoot. "Film at 11......."

Can hardly wait to see what Jay and Zim show us. Can you imagine that talent, four camera bodies and a bunch of cards, in some of the most scenic landscape in the US. I'm just going to drop my jaw now and leave it there.

You're going to be too busy to watch your back, Jim. Bring someone along, someone who also has a CHL.

I just got finished shooting the Mogollon Rim and Meteor Crater, along with a herd of elk and some interesting terrain in between. Jay and I parted company at KCHD this morning and will regroup in Page later today.

Pretty nice out here in Md, so I thought I'd go out to the local field to practice panning .. that didn't work out to good as I should of brought the 80-400mm, but I found some stuff to share ..

The first two are of a twin Commanche out of De, with a fun LLC - Plane Fun, LLC, the pilot / owner came out and asked about my camera / lens and if I was shooting for a magazine - camera was the rock solid D300s with the 70-200mm, so we're not talking aerial shots anyway - but his thinking I'm sure was if I were with a magazine, then his twin Commanche, which is quite old with the tip tanks - updated for todays specs was previously owned by F. Lee Bailey - nice bit of history.

The local Pilatus came in range, but my panning skills suck. As also on the T-28 which was directed to a runway 3/4 of a mile away and he was airborne midfield so that was a miss too ..

The Falcon is also a local bird and used up the runway so had to pass in front of the peanut gallery to head back to the barn.































There was a great looking Army Chinoock but it was parked behind the tower for some reason .. came in yesterday - did some training this morning and came back and parked -- no sign of crew .. thinking I'm gonna have to get up tomorrow and wander out there by 0800 to see if I can catch it.

Those Falcon 10's are disappearing form the fleet due to age. They are a cool little jet. The first ten were basically hand made, which makes parts a little tough sometimes. The first ten are faster than the rest of the fleet though.

Fresh off the press. Risking life and limb was well worth this image. The D800 and this scene were a match made in heaven. Didn't even think about pulling the 1DX's out of the bag. Could be my favorite image of 2013...........
