In Other, Other News...

I'm looking for lodging for Oshkosh. Anyone interested in sharing space for the full Sunday to Sunday stretch?

Jay,
that is a jaw-dropper - the colors and textures in that landscape are fabulous.

@ Steve Z - your shot of the Elks in trail is the sort of thing I see getting syndicated across news agencies in their pic of the day sections.

Oh Gerov! That's one of those magical flights where one doesn't have to climb forever to get on top and play. Great air to air conditions too! I've been waiting for a day like that one to go up with the Hero3 on the Cub and get an hour of winding through the wisps. I'll bet that air was like glass too. Nice capture.


Thank you Jim. The flight was really nice. Can't say the same for the guide I had that day, but that's another story. I wish I'd had my Hero3 that day...

Beautiful moon shot

One of the most magnificent and compelling Powell images I've seen. Great job, Jay!

how would I go about finding out what kind of flight restrictions are in place over a national park here?

Lake Minnewanka, where I scuba dive during the summer, is a beautiful piece of scenery that I'd love to fly over...as is Morraine Lake by lake louise...I'm curious...

A VFR flight map of the area you want to fly over would show any permanent restrictions, and Notams would give you details of any temporary restrictions.

Thanks for the nice feedback on the shoreline shot... Kinda looks like Chocolate Mousse with a Bacon capper to me...

A sectional chart should have dotted lines around natural areas and / or wildlife-sensitive areas and IIRC, 1500' above is the reg.

That is good news, Glenn. You will enjoy the heck out of wringing great images from that camera. I think the D800 + 24-70 f/2.8 is a match made in heaven; just wish Nikon made a VR version of that lens, because the 36-megapixel sensor is very unforgiving when it comes to camera shake. Still, in your capable hands it's sure to produce some stunning, close-in air-to-air. Can't wait to see some.

This it?

I'm not sure if it's complete, but it looks like there're no restrictions. Find a float plane and have fun!

Not to let Jay get too far ahead of me, here's a view of the north shore of Lake Powell just a few minutes before sunset.

That would be her yup...beautiful lake, as are most of the lakes in the mountains around here...although I'd imagine actually flying over it to be not the most pleasant thing unless the conditions were perfect. All the lakes in Banff National Park are a very bright green due to the sediment.

So no one went to Fl for Sun N Fun ?

I guess none of us went, except maybe the few that make their home in The Sunshine State. Scott Slocum headed down late last week for a couple of gigs. Like OSH, I've never made a dime from S'N'F and, unless a bunch of you are there, I've kind of lost my taste for spending a couple of grand to watch airplanes go round and round.

Hey Guys and Gals,

I need to apologize to all of you re: the exchange between Paul and myself this afternoon. Not that it was some kind of inhospitable blow out, it wasn't.I just need to quit tossing a hand grenade into the fuel farm. You all know the principals I live by, and Whom I answer to, it's not necessary to belabor that here. Zim pm'd me and called me on it, and he was right on every count. Not only that, though our views vary widely on things social and political, there are few people I respect and enjoy more. He was right, and only someone who cares a great deal for a person would risk losing a relationship with honesty like that.

I apologize to Paul as well, though we aren't ever likely to move a silly millimeter toward each other on any of those points, it really matters not in the grand scheme. There are so many of you that I have grown close to and sincerely care about, I would not want to offend a single one of you and I'm sorry if I have, at any point, done that.
