Charters....love 'em....hate 'em. Love 'em because you get to see operations that would otherwise never happen today. Hate 'em because there are other good photographers (sometimes way too many) who are photographing the same things. In a tight location such as this one, people have to cycle through in small groups and sure as shootin', the great set-up that exists when Group A goes through will be gone by the time Group C gets there. Then, there's always the "me-first" guy who is posting all of the good scenes from his hotel room, before the charter is even over. By the time most of us get home, we have little enthusiasm to even process the shots. I usually save them for later. Perhaps years later, when everyone has forgotten all about the trip. The older I get, the more difficult it will become to do that.
