Nice ride Dave. I guess you can say you would "throw yourself out of a perfectly good airplane". The weather is beginning to get nice for your sport down here.

Nice architectural work Dan. I'll bet that scene would look great as the light in the sky fades, but before it goes completely dark.

12:36 with a 7 am breakfast meeting racing up at me. Good night everyone.

One last bit of news. Canon is going to provide a 1DC and one of the product gurus in a week to 10 days. Hopefully the howling winds will subside and we can do a little air to air with the 4x4 attached. I'll keep you posted.

Oh yeah, Curtis, you're Hero 2 left today. UPS promises a trip to your front door on Thursday. Enjoy!

All great images... but these two stand out IMHO.

Thanks! The nice thing about that plane is the prop turns at a constant 1500 RPM whether it's at full power or idle. Combined with a 4-blade prop, I can get full prop circles even when it's landing. Except when I'm lying down at the end of the runway shooting at 10mm. Needed a bit more shutter speed for that!

What Rodolfo said, Dave. But I'm also partial to the bug's eye view with the 10mm!

Jim,

Thanks for the comment. I agree, that would look nice with a dark blue sky as the light fades, or maybe better with a vibrant orange sunset. But was on a buisness trip to Madison for a technical conference, the only shooting time I got was 11pm to 1am the day it wasn't raining!

Hopefully I will get more time to practice in Yellowstone last week of may and 1st week of June. At least I get the sunrise to 7:30am time slots free as everyone else is too busy napping to care if I'm there or not.

Dan

Here's a good lesson for us. As a COTA Media enrollee, I got a notification today that the MotoGP was a huge success. Then I went to the website and scrolled through a couple of dozen images, most of which didn't hold a candle to what you folks shot there. One of the major contributors didn't even bother to clone out several boulders residing on his sensor for the entire series. I guess the lesson is MA2A shooters can do better through two chain link fences from the "cheap" seats, than the people granted credentials. Isn't that the way the world works these days.

We should make a presentation to them and tell 'em for 40k an event, we'll shoot the best stuff they've ever seen and make it available to all the media outlets. That's 40k, plus all the 9 buck sandwiches and 8 buck cokes we can consume. Anyway, contrary to opinions held by some, big lenses and premium locations don't always add up to the best images, and we had fun to boot!

So, they can kiss our collective...............

Let's do it.

I wouldn't take a spot away from any of our folks who were already there, or who are trying to make a living from their photography. But if there's a spot left for me on the team, I'll be on a plane in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous image, by the way.

Thanks Rodolfo, always a spot for you! That's a pipe dream, however, things just don't work that way. I guess we'll just have to be content to out shoot them from the boonies!

I've decided I'm going to get in touch with the magazine that has published a few of my shots from back when I used to shoot pretty much nothing but motorcycle racing. I'm curious to see what they'll do for their coverage of MotoGP CoTA (I'm assuming it will be Getty stuff). I think my connection there might be more than happy to help me acquire credentials for next years race

We shall see.

After reviewing my plans for this summer, I've decided to follow Jim's lead and move to the new Kenyon 4x4 gyro. That means my KS-8 needs a new home.

A new KS-8 is $4000. If someone here wants mine, I'll sell it for $2600 in mint condition (tested and checked out by Kenyon Labs before delivery to its new home). Please let me know if you want it; otherwise I'll trade it in as part of the purchase price of the new 4x4.
