Dragging down the runway, Air2Air’s closing favorite move brought to us by our amazing instructor Doug Rozendaal. How we normally end a Air2Air shoot is how we started our Saturday evening shoot, and with Sentimental Journey no less. If only we hadn’t that strong cross wind. Wow!
I was proud of this find, not bad for me. Wait for it…..
We ate lunch at my favorite spot in Hayden Valley and watched winter return!
Just stop, point and shoot!
Take RC and put him in the wilderness and watch out!
In my slippers, right out the door; what a view!
An extra bonus for our R&R was a demo flight of a very pretty T-33, now rolling out.
1 image HDR, a little back lighting and dramatic angle and I have a photo.
As a photographer, this is a great site. As a home owner it means wet snow, what we call Sierra cement.
The view lookin west…why we love it here!
With a total of 8′ new snow, the sun woke us to a grand, grand day! The view off the deck looking south.
Now just a sentry in the winter, this shovel has earned a rest after a decade of moving snow. Oh, and the snow on the siding, I put it there with the blower to make the photo
Yep, it’s late, it’s night and it’s snowing but that doesn’t stop us. When the dog’s gotta go, a dog’s gotta go!
We experienced our first below zero temps of the season this week and that always provides photographic opportunities (along with childish fun). At -1 the Hoar Frost appeared so the 105VR came out for some quick pics.
Yeap, all this was found along the edge of our bird bath. Simple clicks with cold hands = warm heart!

I originally posted this with no text, didn’t think it needed it but I got slammed with emails asking the question, “Why can’t I believe it’s my photograph? The answer is real simple, it’s an amazing opportunity that I never thought I would ever have!
Hell, we didn’t know Bob was going to join us until a few minutes before we left the ground to shoot. Then bam…a Supermarine Spitfire joins the formation and the shoot. It would be like your heading to Central Park to shoot birds and all of a sudden a Black Bear asks if it could tag along for the fun of it. As photographers, it’s what we always hope for but it rarely happens. But here’s the deal, a photographer worth their salt is ready for when those moments do happen so they can make the image. I’m very grateful I had the opportunity!
That’s the amazing Russ piloting Sentimental Journey on our air-to-air evening flight. Even mtc!
Yeah, that’s a B-17, two P-15D Mustangs and Spitfire over the Superstitious Mtns. Just a little teaser.
