I spent a delightful couple of days visiting my son and his fiancι in Seattle, then headed east through Pullman to Bozeman this morning. This is a view of the incredibly rugged terrain northeast of Snoqualmie Pass, around 8:30am this morning.



Thanks Zim ….. I sat down mid morning as I often do.... browsed through the wonderful images here … then I came across this. I have no idea what others may think – but it made me take a sharp intake of breath – it is astonishing and deeply beautiful in equal measure. Oh … and it's called Rhapsody in Blue.

Thanks very much, folks.

Niall, 'Rhapsody in Blue' (great title, Nick) is just east of Seattle: the Bozeman area has quite a different look, with widely spaced mountain ridges and large, open valleys. Big Sky country, indeed.

Climbing out from rwy 31L at KBFI, with a DHL Heavy 'Lined up and waiting' behind me.

Tower: "28Z, divert left or right from runway heading for DHL Heavy on the roll."

Yes, Sir. Right away, Sir.

Spotted this open pit mine a few miles short of the Gallatin valley on the descent into KBZN yesterday. For those of you who can't do the stereo-pair thing, I will tell you that they have excavated themselves an inverted mountain peak from the top of the peak that was already there. Sort of a vertical mirror image of the peak, if you follow me.

Can't compete with the current offerings around here, so I'll just have to fall back on my picture postcard stuff. Sand beach, check – Castle ruin, check – horizontal light with long shadows, check.

Good Morning Everyone,

Back on deck after yesterday's marathon 22 hour day, day two in what is a super marathon two week period. We wrapped up the 330 shoot at 3 am, which would have been grueling enough, but it was the second shoot of the day. The first one began just before dawn north of HQ about ten miles.

Back to more mundane subjects for the next three weeks. Wealth is a peculiar and extremely relative thing. I spent 12 hours in an aircraft containing a million dollars in carpet, and more $50,000 captain's chairs than one can count. You focus on the demanding task at hand, but every once in a while you can't help but be amazed.

Speaking of being amazed, this thread continues to do that on a regular basis.

Welcome back Boydo! Yes Father, watch over all of your children great and small, this world is a very scary place if one is not hand in hand with You. The older I get the more I understand why children, and "being as little children" held/holds such importance to Christ. Their innocence, vulnerability, and unquestioning faith, qualities that would endear anyone.

Steve, if I am not mistaken, that looks like the mine where they had a landslide of massive proportions.

I think i cut my eye balls on that shot of Super Dave Jay!

so we're bringing 'em in close today??




Hey did you, (or anybody) happen to see those photos maybe last year of Superdave where he was flying without the canopy and "tossing" skydivers out of the front seat by doing hard pushovers?

It's an open pit Copper mine....I believe, it's the worlds largest/deepest open pit Copper mine. At least that's what was on the sign when I was driving by a few years ago.
