Glenn, nice job with the setting sun. You've had several shots lately where you had to time the sunset and place your subject perfectly.

What are those concentric ridges and that strange little pond in the background of the first two shots (which are also superb, BTW)?

Hi Mark:
Good question about the ridges - i dont know. Maybe Wrei has an idea? I know they're everywhere in this area and make for interesting backdrops. The strange little pond is a funny discription for a livestock "tank" - a homemade watering hole for cows, dove hunting and frog legs growing.

Mark, Glenn, those are terraced rows in farm fields. They are used to slow heavy rain water flow, thus stopping/slowing erosion and better managing the flow to a wash, draw or creek. They can plow and plant on top of them so the farmers don't loose any farm land.

Thanks Wrei. I guess that (plowing and planting on top) explains why they are so big.

Yes Mark, my neighbor to the north terraced his field a couple of years ago. They are like 10 yard speed bumps.

Well, we just had yet another tornado a couple of hours ago. This was located about five miles to our west, so there is no damage at our house. Walmart has some leaks in the roof and a few signs in the same area were damaged. The risk for this type of weather was nil. What makes this even worse is the list below.


What are the most tornado prone cities in the United States?
My list would be:
1. Oklahoma City, OK
2. Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
3. Tulsa, OK
4. Wichita, KS
5. Huntsville, AL
6. Saint Louis, MO
7. Indianapolis, IN
8. Kansas City, MO
9. Birmingham, AL
10. Jackson, MS


5. Huntsville, AL
9. Birmingham, AL

This is as close as I've come in many months to a Mustang in flight.

The work here is off the charts .. but I have the Horne Point Antique Airplane Fly In this weekend and I took this afternoon off to see if I could catch and practice .. so here's a few shots ..

Think they call this a Bamboo Bomber cuz it's made out of wood ..

1956 CESSNA T-50 out of PA .. though I heard it came out of NY today ..
fun guy .. last photo is the behind the scenes of a * photoshoot * he had agreed to do for another pilot who had flown in .... so if you see these boxers and the T-50 .......... He came together in MD

Lower please .. fly over to check out grass runway and ground traffic ..



















YEP .. It's a grass field alright ...... stuck in a hole ..

Thanks folks ..

Razor .. that's what I was coming up with but the .gov kept droppin' the c so I wasn't sure .. so it may be that that indeed the Bamboo Bomber came out of PA and the bipe came out of NY today .. bipe pilot parked next to and was flabergasted over this * older gent * in his boxers doing a photoshoot ..... lol

50% Saph .. Rain or Shine I'll be there - I'm thinking around 0630 .... RAIN DATE IS MAY 19th though ......... When it comes to planes, I don't get a lot of opportunity so plan to be all over this ...

Umm, Glenn? This what you're waiting for?

BTW, this one is a minor crop of a D800 file that is turtles, all the way down.

Good Evening Y'all. Hope everyone had a great week!

Glenn, my Thesaurus fails me! Great work.

Curt, nice work on the grass strip!

Erich, welcome back! That's a beautiful image! Don't be bashful about sharing great shots like that!!

I've been wheels up and down so many times this week, I am not sure I know exactly where I am. But I had a short conversation with Larry Grace and Jose Ramos out in Seattle. There were Spitfires and Billy Mitchells flying in the background so life was good. Jose told me that the general consensus is, ISAP 2013 is the best ever, by a huge margin. I'm so happy for everyone attending, and for my friends on the board, particularly Larry. Our membership will never fully know what we have been up against over the past year and a half, nor should they, but it's been tough, and at times very disheartening. I'm so happy that ISAP 2013 is progressing so well.

Can hardly wait to see what "The Boys" bring home from their flights today. My guess is they are celebrating a wonderful, long day and they'll be passing out while downloading the day's take.
