I've read this before; nice idea, but have never seen the answer as to how on-board electric storage will power long distance airplanes, or truck and rail freight. Electric locomotives from the early to mid 20th century were made obsolete as being too expensive, and high maintenance.
What a joy to look at your beautiful images. My wife and I visited in Oregon a couple of years ago in the spring. Your images were quite a memory trip for us and reminded us of the wonderful time we had while visiting and shooting photos along the coast. That is one of the great things about photos, after repeated viewings from a picture album, it is so much easier to return to the site in one's mind, thus our great enjoyment of your images. Thanks so much. John
Beautiful series; makes me wish I'd never moved away from that unique and scenic state.
The No.7 Black and Red engine in your earlier post, is no longer in service and sits on a display track. I was there in 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed the train ride behind one of the former Weyerhauser 2-6-6-2 tank engines.
Wow! Amazing clarity and color. You definately have a keeper!
These are real nice shots, great job. Looks like some of these were taken from another plane. Like the last one taken from above while in flight. I can't understand why it has the "Memphis Belle" markings though. Anyway...lovely photos, thanks for sharing.
Go to site http://www.sallyb.org.uk/warbirds.htm
for a full explanation for the nose art markings. The Sally B was repainted as the Memphis Belle for the 1990 movie of the same name and was left with the Belle nose art to assist in fundraising efforts for Sally. So it would seem that there now exists two B-17's with the Belle nose art, but with differing tail numbers. The full story is well worth the read.
Yes, it can be difficult; here are my thoughts. Use Manual mode, aperture wide open, experiment with relatively slow shutter to blur the scanning lines, Use a tripod, zoom to fill the viewfinder and prefocus on the screen, don't look through the viewfinder but use cable release. Try to anticipate the action and practice beforehand on the commercials.

Its very easy to come up with many reasons not to "SWITCH" to mirrorless. Its much more difficult to not consider "adding" mirrorless to your DSLR arsenal.
I agree wholeheartedly. I have ADDED two Oly mirrorlesss units, the EM1mk2 and the em5mk2, plus 3 lenses, (all used from Roberts Camera). But I still Have a 5d3, and a 70d that my wife loves. Also will keep all my L glass until I am no longer in the photography state of mind. The lack of PDAF focusing is still the bane of Olympus cameras, but I do love the lite weight of the little beauties, especially with native glass. Also the IQ will match my L glass in virtually every practical way unless if you are a pixel peeper above 100%.
That is a good price guys. I have the same 1.4 mkll extender that I use with my 5dlll and 100-400L mkll with perfect results.
Beautiful set, reminds me of when I lived in Montana and hunted in big, beautiful Wyoming.
[quote=DesRose]Regarding the Nikon FX 28-300mm zoom lens we settled opinions once and for all (for the haters out there) that this lens IS viable as a good walk around/travel lens.
I quote the above portion of the OP as probably being the most relevant portion. I agree that almost any 28-300 lens, or it's equivalent is a great walk around lens. I am currently using an Olympus 14-150 (28-300 FF eqiv.) weatherproof, light weight, sharp, and I love the possibilities that it provides--just sayin'. John
Interesting little critters when you go on board. The boat consists mostly of a hull, a large diesel engine and just the necessary running, steering gear;and a sturdy, coarse sawtooth bow plate. They have a cage around their very large propeller so they can work inside the boom logs (millpond) while surrounded by the logs they are pushing toward the hoist chain that lifts the logs into the mill or whatever the destination is. Needless to say, they are not designed to be used in rough water, for if swamped, they will sink like a stone. Some call the operator a 'cowboy' as he 'herds' the logs. One boat takes the place of many lumberjacks who formerly did the same job in the olden days.
Good to know how the volunteers play such a large part in the overall picture of maintenance. Thanks for being a chronicler Pat, and for running this segment.

Will the tele extender couple with a 600mm Tamron?
This is for a Canon mount
It works good with some older cameras. It does work on my 5d3 and 70d, but
like I said in the post, will not work with the 80d or 5d mk4, or probably other later cameras.
I can only speak to it working on Canon lenses 70-200 f4 and 100-4mk2. Read comments on B&H postings by reviewers. John
Great capture, Bruce!
I appreciate your looking and nice comment. John
