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.
Not my final version, but this is a simple 5 frame, handheld HDR finished with Silver Efex Pro. Shooting into the sun, the only solution.
ESA is cranking, weather is cranking, images are cranking, I’m headed back out to crank!
Really, just turned, placed split grad in front of lens and went….click!
It’s so easy, walk, look and click. When you’re in ME in Fall at least.
Yeap, B&W was the final, the drama really pops in shades of gray.
That’s simply one bad ass cloud dumping serious snow. And look at that light. Sheer Power!
Nothing escapes a Sierra winter storm, not even Mono Lake.
The opening in the clouds lets just enough sun to peak through to dance on the falling snow. Gorgeous!

An evening I will never forget, the story to come; photo taken with new 28-300VR.
If not busy enough, we managed to pick up side work with Classic Fighters. This is their plane, what a great boss and talk about big time fun!
Getting on the ramp prior to sunrise is a great privilege being a credentialed shooter at the Reno Air Races. At 06:00 every morning you can find us laying on the tarmac, not sleeping but shooting. This is Rare Bear, a plane that’s really got a place in racing history and from the ass, a wicked paint job!

Richard is challenging me again, get the Pilot with HIS plane. Here’s a start with this Tiger Cat.
