Simple Click – Wow … Snow!

It snowed today and for a heartbeat after the sun set, birds showed up. 800mm always set up, attached the Df set to ISO1600 and photographed the Junco posing out the window. 2013 will go down as California’s driest year ever...

D4 & Df – Yes, there is a Difference

After I posted my little fireside chat, received a bunch of emails saying basically, “Didn’t know it was so small.” Yes, the Df is smaller than the D4.

The T6 Gold Race champ at Reno many times over (including this year at the 50th), Dennis took me for a spin around his practice course. I’ve always wondered what it was like to go around the pylons, being 50′ above the ground at 244mph. I can honestly say I now have a sense of it. Here, we’re setting up to “jump onto the course.” Oh baby, blows away any E Ticket ride! See the blur of the ground? That’s at 1/500! You see, I had the Df and 18-35AFS set up from the aerials and in having SO MUCH FUN flying, I totally forgot to set for the ground run. Oh darn, I’ll just have to do it...
