    Great shots Jonathan. That is stupidly sharp.

    Here's something a little different for me.


    We had a part flown in for our sulphuric acid plant over the weekend... a big part that is. This is a massive Russian Ilyushin I1-76 and it was a bit of a struggle landing this bad boy on our little runway in Mount Isa. They actually had to unload the cargo so it could take off again. I was perched right at the end of the runway and I can assure you, it's LOUD. Apparently this is one of the largest transport planes in the world.

    Nice work on this page....Jonathan, the combo of the 1Dx, 500 f/4II and you as the photographer continue to yield impressive results.

    I spent Thanksgiving holiday in Chicago. I did manage to get out take a few shots:

    It's that time of the year when all of my critters are underground (time to switch things up and try my hand at birds again). However, I was driving through Cincinnati and one of my collaborators has always told me about a population of European Wall Lizards that was released in an urban area in downtown Cincinnati approximately 80 years ago. Basically, you just go to the Starbucks on Columbia if anyone is interested. Anyways, these lizards are adapted to cold environments and so they are still out running around.

    This Saturday I went for a drive into the woods nearby to get a shot I had in mind for the current assignment. My daughter is also beginning to grow the photography interest and came with me. So far she may not be quite as interested as I - the Teenager Hobby, i.e. staring at the phone, still comes first.



    This time of year it gets dark early. At around 3.30 p.m. there wasn't much light left and we did some playing around with long exposures. In this one I started a 15 second exposure, then she walked into the frame and I fired a pilot flash from a handheld 430EX. This one ended up being her favorite shot from that day.



    Thanks for viewing!

    Have to agree with your daughter, I really like the last one as well.
    Great close-ups Dustin and is there a tiny bit of HDR in your shot David?
    Nice series Brant, fancy you stumbling upon the 96th floor.....

    Thanks very much! I should add that when shooting from the car in the winter, it is actually important to open all the windows and shut off the heater. If you don't, then all the warmth radiating from your window will affect the image sharpness. It is like shooting through the heat refraction from a hot road surface... it muddles the background a lot, and reduces the subject sharpness. I have noticed that problem occur in images where I had 'panic stop' situations for wildlife, and only had time to open my window and fire a quick burst. It took me a while to realize what was happening. So now I make sure to open everything wide and get the inside of the car as cold as I can, as fast as I can, whenever I have the time.

    Used Color Efex Pro 4 to make it pop a bit.

    Really nice images everyone. Seems I have really pulled a rotator cuff and find it hard to hold a camera. But, here is one (tripod used) from Thanksgiving.
