Can't remember if it was a Beechcraft. I'll check. Here's another - can't remember what this one was either. Judging from what my niece's husband told me, this show is a lot bigger than in the old days.

Walt - I'm almost sure it's a Waco - I zoomed in on the dash and I can see "Troy, Ohio" printed. That's where Waco's were built. I can barely a "Wa.." above that.

Great shots seraphim. Those moon shots are intriguing.

I know what you mean about the lack of cheerleaders. Unfortunately, the Bears got rid of their cheerleaders a long time ago

Those moon shots are fake lol. They're a white sphere with an image of the moons surface projected on it. That's how I could get a shot of the full moon and the half moon within 30 seconds of each other.

seraphim - when you're on the road, are you using Lightroom mobile?

No - I do everything pretty much on the iPad: Photogene. No layers or masking, etc, just basic controls for tweaking.

About the only thing I use my laptop for is playing with HDR (see above). Occasionally I open an old, old version of Photoshop if I need layers or masks. (Photoshop 7). Maybe once or twice a year lol.

A pod of about 30 orcas swam in front of our place today. What I really wanted to do was mount my GoPro camera on a long pole and get some underwater footage... Some individuals swam within 15ft of shore so I could have gotten some incredible shots! But as it turned out, I didn't have time to run back to the cottage to get the GoPro. I did get some pretty cool conventional photos though. Out kayaking right now, will post some pics this evening.
