A Different Year But a Similar Image

It’s funny how time repeats itself. Two years ago at Planes of Fame I saw this image of a P-38 with the tower behind it and the neon lights giving off starbursts. Well on the last day I was up for sunrise photographing the statics and I couldn’t help but notice the same situation present […]

Remembering VE Day

Yesterday wasn’t just Mother’s Day but also the 71st anniversary of VE Day, or Victory Europe. It marked the end of WWII in Europe with the surrender of Germany.

One Heck of a Flight

On the way back to Minot this past week the Texas Flying Legends Museum’s aircraft took a northern route through California, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Along the way we passed over some absolutely beautiful scenery. We reached our destination in the early afternoon, Glacier National Park. This once in a lifetime opportunity added another chapter […]

Planes of Fame Twilight Show

This year at the Planes of Fame Airshow they are doing a Friday Twilight show between 12pm and 8pm. I’ve not seen nor participated in this before so I don’t know what it’s going to be like but from the schedule it looks to be like a lot of fun. The Texas Flying Legends Museum […]

Planes of Fame Airshow is here!

If you live in southern California then you’ve probably heard of the Planes of Fame Airshow held at Chino Airport at the end of April/beginning of May. It’s one of the great Warbird airshows on the west coast and it’s one that I’ve gone to numerous over the years. I missed last year’s show because […]

Which Pano option is best?

Simple Pano question for you. When it comes to panos is it better for the pano to be long and skinny or shorter and wider? I keep playing with the different aspect ratios which differs greatly when you combine more images and I can’t decide whether spherical or cylindrical is a best. In some cases […]

What to do with Gray Skies?

I quite often post about working with gray skies on my blog and the challenges they present. Often times I don’t go out shooting on those kind of days because even if you find a great subject the light creates a more depressing or sad mood that can be seen in the photos. However, in […]

The Artsy side of Wildlife

I often don’t go towards the more artistic side of wildlife photography but every now and then an opportunity presents itself and you just have to go with it. After my run in with the wolf I truly done for the day. I didn’t think it could get any better and the light was fading […]

74 years Later

April 18th marked the 74th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. It was the first raid conducted against Japan by USAAF B-25 bombers launched from the carrier USS Hornet. This one act has gone down in history not only for the bravery of the men but also the determination of the mission. Today there are only […]
