Very cool image J-A. I've really enjoyed your non-traditional shots of the T-Birds. Excellent work sir.

Here is a F-5N clearing the fence on final into MCAS Yuma.

Very dark and brooding..,perfect for the cold rainy weather here in Cleveland.

Is the noise in that media shot there on purpose? If so, OK, but if not I'd tone it down some.

Welcome Doug! I haven't had much luck with the 100-400 and any tele-extender. Other than that, it sounds like you are loaded. Haven't shot Houston so I don't know how close you can get to the action. We all found a lot of heat/wind distortion at AFW last weekend when we were shooting focal lengths over 300. The 500 was marginal, 800 was useless.

Speaking of useless, my 4:30 wake up call fell into that category. There I was, set up way in advance, everything wet down and anticipating a perfect Texas dawn. What I didn't anticipate was all the soffit accent lights shutting down about five minutes before the perfect light. I scrambled to find the manual override, but no joy...........literally NO JOY! So I get to do it all over tomorrow morning and someone gets billed an extra grand before breakfast......

Bummer Jim. It's always the little details that bite you...

...like some day I'll actually remember to check what's in the background before taking the shot.

Erich! Yes, you do have some "crapy content" there on the lower right side Seems to be a leason we all have to learn/re-learn/repeat. Last week of September I was out in Colorado and afterwards I made notes of all that I learned. One of the first notes I wrote was slow down and check for un-wanted background content. Now to remember to read those notes before the next photo session/trip.

Still a very nice shot, perspective.

If you want action for Houston, the warbirds will cut the corners of the ramp during photo passes. I feel like you are close to the action, but I also don't make it to any other shows to see what they are like. Lighting gets perfect after lunch, and our temps will be down, so heat haze shouldn't bother you too much. The only thing you may have issues with, could be the smoke from the pyro. Last year the winds were very light, the grass wasn't burned off well, and the field almost went IFR. I had to give up shooting on a few occasions because there was either nothing to see, or nothing photoshop would do to remove the haze.

I'll be there busy with the Vietnam jets, but also keeping the camera close. For the first time in 22 years, those of us with the Collings Foundation in Houston get to experience all of our local collection (minus the F-4) flying during the hometown airshow! I can hear the Blues doing their arrival maneuvers as I type.

First impressions of the new iMac Retina 27" are extremely favorable. The display is a joy to behold, and not just for photos---though photos on this display really do look like very good 27" prints, illuminated from within: even with my nose pressed up against the screen and my glasses off, I can't see the individual pixels---but perhaps even more so for text, which has an engraved quality. The machine seems speedy, too, though I haven't given it a 4K video to chew on yet.

TOPP: pot luck this afternoon.

The BUFF seemed like it called for Viveza 2 to do it justice.

Mighty fine BUFFs, Erich.

While J-A and I were out tooling around in the Pipistrel at low altitudes, we came across a flock of white pelicans basking on a sand bar.

Is that a fuel tank under the belly of T-bird #7, or a cargo pod? This was the morning practice on Thursday.
