While I really enjoy reviewing these landscapes from Alaska, they don't do the scenery justice. Every frame reminds of His wonderful work in this part of the world.

Been burning up the pavement with my Tesla buddies; we're in Barstow tonight.

The last two are the Ivanpah solar electric generating station in the CA desert near Primm, Nevada. It's a spooky thing to see: so intense, it actually lights up the desert air near the boiler towers.

A few more from Locarno's airshow.

Here we see Bf 108 pretty often, not sure how much its common elsewhere:

Looks like this Spit has been touring around Europe the last few months:

"I SQR R" is a pretty cool license plate for an electric car. Your's or one of your buddies?

The Buy & Sell forum is an interesting place to hang out right now. Over 500 views on my camera, and not even a nibble yet. I'm reducing my public price to $1850 all-inclusive and we'll see what happens.

Can you say "oversupply"?

If you're a potential buyer right now, like Glenn, shop carefully and negotiate! Very much a buyer's market right now.

Pouring rain today........love it!!! My assignment was just officially moved to next week, so I'll be catching up at HQ for the balance of the day.

Revisiting one of my favorite assignments for a stock use request. This shoot rates in my lifetime favorite top 5.

I am pretty good at recognizing military aircraft, but my knowledge of civil light planes is very limited. I was unable to proper identify the two, hope somebody may help:

Lesson learned on this morning. The boats had been delivered the evening before and placed in slips at the marina. We were scheduled to meet the ad agency people, and the editor of Forbes magazine around 9 at the dock. The young guy from the factory who was in charge of getting the boats exactly where we needed them, our formation pilot for lack of a better characterization, decided the evening before that we would meet up about 5 am, and play a little before all the muckety mucks arrived.

There were so many keepers from this shoot that I couldn't begin to pick my favorite, but the half hour right before dawn was absolutely the most magical. It was so incredibly perfect that something kept telling me it was too perfect. That something was malfunctioning, a card was corrupting, we couldn't possibly be capturing what I was seeing. I double checked everything I could, pushed that negativity off the dock and kept on shooting. The photo editor at Forbes called me to say that she, in all her years at Forbes, had never had so many incredible images to choose from.

This was one of those situations where preparation met opportunity, after air to air work, water to water was second nature.

Heard in Waitrose (supermarket) car park in Frimley/Camberley today as the Airbus 350 passed overhead doing its Farnborough demo:
Trolley-getter to middle-aged female customer, "That's the Airbus 380 over us now". Me to both, "No, that's the Airbus 350, apart from the fact that it's smaller than the 380, it is in Qatar markings whilst the 380 is in Airbus markings."
Female customer, "My God, we're buying airliners from the Arabs now!"
Me, "Actually, we're selling them to the Arabs, that's why it's in Qatar Airlines livery."
Female customer, "Oh, that's alright then."
I kid you not!!!

Only in England! :-)

The first aircraft is a North American Navion, I am not sure of the exact model.

The second aircraft according to the FAA database is an Edge 540.

The first is actually a Focke-Wulf Fw149. It does look a lot like the Navion though.

I wonder if it's possible to discriminate between Focke-Wulf Fw 149 and Piaggio P.149...

The plane is bases in Ticino, the only italian-speaking Swiss canton, southern to the Alps. Pretty close to the Italian border, but not too far from Germany either.
