Ah the joys of large storage arrays at home. Replacing 2Tb disks in one of my RAID arrays with 4Tb disks (as the array is full). Waiting 4 hours for the array to rebuild before I can replace the last disk.
As per usual shooting corporate execs (or in this case University execs), 15-30mins setup, shot precisely two photos, then 15-30mins pull-down.
Another shot from Red Thunder. This is a Nanchung CJ-6 (a Chinese copy of a Russian Yak-52), taking off.
Part of a series of shots I did attempting stupidly slow shutter speed panning.
This one was 1/60th sec at 400mm f/9.
Canon EOS 1Dx + Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L & Canon 2x TC.
Went to a small air-show today and took Dad and my brother along. 'twas a good day out and I have a lot of images to go through, but here's one of a small mishap when the pilot mis-judged the corner while taxiing. The plane was fine, and the pilot quickly corrected to avoid a tip-over.
Fokker DR-1 replica.
Shot a new medieval festival yesterday at Bunjurga Winery. Still quite small (being the first year), but I think it has a lot of potential.
One of my long time re-enactor friends wanted a full length photo of her period accurate costume, and lacking a decent background, I dropped in a quick and dirty replacement this morning.
Far from perfect, but I think it works "enough" for the purpose.
Gah! Damn bird. So I have the occasional Pale-headed Rosella come to visit. They are notoriously flighty (unlike their Crimson brethren). I just saw one in the backyard. I grabbed the camera, whacked a 2x teleconverter on it, and approached the back door. It looked up, and flew off before I was even within arms reach of the door!
This is why this species of #bird is my nemesis.
