Honestly I was amazed at how quiet and smooth it was...maybe its because he was loafing along at 20 inches, or the exhaust points down rather than out the side like a Mustang, but i never heard the thing once and he was really tight. My heart was pounding though shooting 1/50" in the severe afternoon chop with my fingers crossed - that felt like thunder! I have a bruise above my eye from the camera viewfinder banging into my face 100 times too to back it up.

Interesting analysis Zim. I'm sure you two will become friends in the air in short order. That grey "S" was beautiful as it slipped out into the early morning light.

Wow Glenn, that's a beauty! I know what you mean re: the sore spots. I usually nurse those for weeks after a mission in the Mitchell.

Speaking of Teslas, I was surprised to find this charging station in the Oregon Cascades at Detroit, about half way from Salem to Bend on the two lane.

I think that I lean toward the second image, but I'll let my client choose their preference.


Chiming in a little late, but I think the advantage of the second image is you also convey a more pleasing sense of the view out the windows. The first image the outside is a bit blown out.

There are nearly 100 of those Tesla fast charging stations in the lower 48 now, and more every month: with the Superchargers you get 170 miles of added range in a 30 minute charging session. Pretty soon, making a cross-country road trip in a Model S will be a no-brainer, instead of the planning exercise it's been up to this point, sort of like flying a small plane cross-country, with really long fueling stops.

Here's a couple from the NAS Fort Worth show....I don't have much to share though. The haze was awful on Saturday. I had a great spot to shoot from...thanks to the Air Boss bringing me out with him for the duration! The conditions and my ineptitude created the worst airshow photo day I've had in a long time.
Oh well.

On the other hand...I had the opportunity to hang out with the Aluminum Overcast crew for a while at Arlington Muni last week.
It was a nice windy day...rather bumpy...but Warbird flight is always a good time!





Can you say Cross wind?

If that's your worst Zane, you're in good shape

That's a considerable investment when you consider the number of Telsa vehicles on the road today, impressive commitment.

Jim, for your 2 pics.

I like bits a pieces of each, but prefer the 2nd altogether.
#1 has the cord under the window.
I prefer the color of the light across the foot of the bed in #1 (on my work monitor in an IT dungeon.)
In the 2nd, the chair pillow on the left is a tad HDR orangeish.. I like the sky blue in the 2nd set.. although these would be better if you could paste in a sweet sweet cloudy sky from a Microsoft cloud or maybe brickwall bitmap.
What I really like in the 2nd is the lamp on the left. The illuminated orange glass and shade is nice. Also in the 2nd you can get a better sense of the vaulted ceiling. So.. #2 for me..
Again.. as a code monkey my work monitors aren't the best.

Anyone fancy riding on the Canadian Lancaster, over to the UK?

For the fast charges..
I have a Nissan Leaf. The dealer where I leased mine from has a fast charger that is free to use. Not sure about TX but here in GA they are giving huge incentives to get an electric vehicle and for business to install charging stations. My neighbors son in law has a Telsa S and it is gorgeous. After driving electric, my VW diesel wagon seems like a crude clacking rattle trap. Even the automatic transmission is annoying. I did a 2 year lease on the Leaf and have loved it so far.

Jim,

I think the light in shot 1 looks more natural for a day time shot, however it makes the highlights look a tad overblown - the front edge of the bed cover, the ceiling lights and the exterior sky are the main areas.

Hey Jim, we had a VERY classy-looking private 777 (registration VP-CAL) on the FBO ramp at KPHX. Any chance it's one of your clients? I did not get a chance to photograph it, but it sure isn't a bad way to travel

that is quite the paint on that 777.

Barksdale turned away my camera bag, so I was stuck making a split second decision on what to leave in the trunk of my rental...I chose wrong. This is actually taken with my phone, but I wasn't about to pass up the opportunity.

Hopefully you're bringing that badboy to Alliance Thursday Stevez? Looking forward to seeing it on the wing!


You betcha: Alliance is on my list of planned trips, in the program letter I file with the FAA every year in support of the Experimental airworthiness certificate. And KEIK to KTKI is a single 4-1/2 hour leg in the Pipistrel, too: no fuel stops required!

Here's a five-frame HDR cockpit interior of the Avro Anson mk1 at Wanaka. What a beautiful restoration! And it's a D800 file, so there is detail aplenty
