Re: At the Dam

And now for the red meat, well, white meat actually. Part 2 a77II and Tamron 150-600mm. I have to say that I still struggle with which focus setting I should use for the a77II in this circumstance. Not sure if my hit rate is good or needs improvement. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/166705282.Lg...

At the Dam

Conowingo Dam supports one of the largest bald eagle populations on the east coast. That population swells in December as migrating eagles find it a good place to rest and fatten up for the journey south. Fish that flow through the dam become disoriented and end up easy catches for the birds and opp...

Re: After the Storm

Interesting comment. Not one person that I spoke to in Florida mentioned climate change. Who among us knows why these folks are focused on other things. I wish I knew the answers to these questions. The question of Antarctica's ice mass is hotly debated. Same for the Arctic. I only wanted to show th...

Re: Powerboat Races

Watching them hug after crawling out of the hull was interesting. Maybe a few more. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/166591466.qdlMhbwF.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/166591482.XRBiL5qA.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/166591452.gT2aThUq.jpg

After the Storm

One cannot visit the Florida Keys without feeling the impact of Hurricane Irma. Debris is placed in front of houses,formed in piles on the side of the road, and staged for processing in centrally located areas. Just minutes from the home where I stayed is a refrigerator graveyard. It processes units...

Re: Powerboat Races

Yes, these boats do tend to flip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpNM7K8NJ2M I was 100 yards from the incident and was recording video at the time. Unfortunately, I was holding the camera above my head and when the boat took off, I lost my orientation and missed the shot. Total fail. Regardless, fa...

Powerboat Races

Every year, the fastest boats and their racing teams shoot it out in Key West, Florida. This year was special as it was held shortly after Hurricane Irma ravaged the Keys and southwest Florida. The community was determined to get back on it's feet and this was one way to show the world that Key West...
