    I'm in love with Shanty Irish. What a stunningly beautiful aircraft!

    Also I love the two (late afternoon?) shots of Full Noise. Very moody.

    Those were actually dawn patrol shots. Graeme was just coming back when I shot those. Yes, Full Noise is a great looking airplane. I hope they return and continue to improve. I think they learned a lot about racing this year. Its no small feat to race their way into the gold from not qualifying with a stock engine. No, the fields weren't super fast, but still, they got the storybook experience. My hat is off to them.

    A few more shots... From the IF1 Gold start line Sunday morning.

    I got creative with this shot. I had 3 nearly identical shots, with lightning in different places. Since the foreground didn't change, I thought I'd try stacking the image. (I couldn't get it to work on my computer so I had to enlist Conner Madison for a little help. Thanks again for the 1.6GB file) Its a little fuzzy if you look really hard, but I think it came out pretty cool.


    Onto the Silver race, from the hillside. It wasn't my best work from up there, but still, there are a few cool shots.













    The long lens perspective. Shot at 270mm, I really like the mirage at the bottom.

    A few more shots from Thursday.

    Making a Wildcat look like its doing 500mph... (I really pushed my limits as a photographer for this. I shot this handheld at 410mm, F18 at 1/60 sec shutter speed)


    Not quite as slow, but still 1/80 sec 410mm.


    Shanty Irish at 1/100th sec 400mm


    1/80 at 400mm



    Shanty Irish on the ramp Friday night.



    I got some good stuff of the Sport class as well.
    460mm, 1/125 shutter speed.

    480mm at 1/80


    another at 480 1/80
