And yet the suborbital perspectives keep climbing to TO24 slots. I can't see this happening without a campaign that would win the 2020 election. There are just not enough regular viewers who would...

Carl,

I've looked at your photo history here, and your oldest photo was shot on a digital camera, so I am assuming that you have never scanned a slide or tried to process one. It is a lot more...

I am pretty sure that Anso disappeared well before I started shooting in the mid-70's and well before this 1989 scene. Regrettably, I shot some Agfa during that time period, ant the biggest issue...

Kevin,

As the veteran of over forty years of main line steam chases, I respectfully disagree. Once it happened, the solar eclipse was a one-location event. This will be a continuous insane...

Agree 100%. There should be a "Distorted Image - Drone Too High" rejection. While there is no current rejection that applies to those shots, constant acceptance of them is like rewarding bad...

So do I - my timing with trips there have not coincided with any significant snow, just weather that was too cold and bitter to be out of the car for more than ten minutes. I did stay home the week...

I'm with you Kevin. While an occasional nose-on shot adds variety, I don't get the guys who live on a steady diet of that perspective, because they generally all look alike. Worse yet is the photo...

If you're still up for some foamer action, I can fly into O'Hare early morning on Sunday the 6th. Will be there until Wednesday afternoon, but work precludes any daytime action during the week.
