      Ok it's beer o'clock question time.

      Any serious Reno air race fan can tell by this picture roughly what time it was by the shadow and it's direction.

      The shot was taken on Thursday 09/15/2011, the time stamp has been removed so don't try that.

      My attention was distracted by this frosty beer between airplane noise events.

      Anyone?

        Just about time for gold unlimited race. AKA ~4:00.
        You'll get your chance, smart guy!

          Don,

          Great shot and quiz young man.

          You were having beer for breakfast, I would say 8:00am in the stands.

            I'm no Copernicus but, does it not depend on which direction your facing? I figure you're facing north, sitting in the stands in some row, at Seat 22, but I'm not familiar with the numbering in the stands.

            If north, it's early AM (long shadow to the west of the cup)
            But if you're facing east, it's midday (shadow to the north of the cup)
            And it you're facing south, it's late PM (long shadow east of the cup)

            And it's west...well...we'd all be dead.

              Well done guys!

              I was facing north as the seat numbers are upside down.

              So with the long shadow to the left (west) it was early in the morning, the time stamp I erased said 09:32 AM.

              Thanks for playing!

              It was tasty beer as I recall, it filled in the gaps between flights nicely!!!

                Any beer, at any time of the day, is always nice while in Reno/Stead in mid-September!

                    Speaking of beer, how about the beer lady.

                    One with pigtails to boot.

                    She even signed shirts

                      Wish I had a way to get these off the camera.

                        I have a multi SD card, there pretty cheap now-a-days



                        I would loan it to you but I have been avoiding too much contact do to you know what.

                        This weekend my daughter and son-in-law were here and they went to a large service/celebration of life get-to-gether.

                        Maybe once things settle down, ok.

                          Not only did she sign autographs, but it looks like somebody named Chris signed her too.

                                I need to get a 35mm slide scanner, been on my wish list for couple years. I have lots of 35mm slides 79 to mid 80.

                                Share some of those shots once you get them downloaded.
