Cell phones aboard aircraft do not interfere with any navigation or communication equipment. They do, however, tie up multiple cell towers. A commercial jet traveling at 500 MPH covers more than 8 miles per minute, and at 35,000 feet would contact at least a dozen cell towers every 5 minutes. Multiple that by 4,000 flights every hour times an average of 100 passengers per flight and you have virtually every cell tower being used. A needless tie up of cell towers without any revenue to the cell phone companies.

[quote=katu41]Thanks to many of you for viewing and commenting on my recent posts of black and white photographs. I recently reviewed old files in my Lightroom library and picked images that I thought had potential for B&W. Here are a few more examples:

1. Naples Church This shot from 2014 was of a church on the main square in Naples, Italy. While I felt the color image was pretty good, I was really surprised by the conversion to B&W. Shot with a Canon 5D II with a 24-105 L lens.

2. Naples Galleria: This photo was shot a few minutes before No. 1. This is in a shopping mall (Not sure what the original use of the building was when built.) The geometry of the building speaks for itself.

3. Valencia, Spain: The City of Arts and Science in Valencia is one of the most unusual places I have ever visited. The scale of the buildings is unbelievable and the architecture is absolute world class. I will post more from here in the coming weeks.

While the color processing of these 3 shots seemed to work well, I thought they also landed themselves to B&W. Your comments are greatly appreciated.[/quo

Your photos are lovely. I am very impressed with the wide angle lack of distortion in the first and third pictures. Very nicely done.

Blackhorse, - - - When the Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds arrive in town Tipp City, OH (Dayton International Airport) every year for the Dayton Air Show they fly very low over the surrounding areas to announce their arrival and they practice their maneuvers over these same areas on Thursday and Friday before the Airshows on Saturday and Sunday. Never heard of anyone around here complaining, except when they don't get their cameras out in the backyard fast enough! A couple years ago a Blue Angel came screaming over the trees towards my garage door and pulled that baby straight up into a vertical climb; beautiful! I think My Wife spilled Her tea. I will go through My files and post it if you like.

Of course they fly low over populated areas where they are performing. But there is a great difference between 10 feet AGL (above ground level) and 100 feet AGL. Most folks could not tell the difference as everything is fast and seems so low. All that I was saying is that when the US teams fly very low they are over water, and that the crazy low pilots in the video appear to be Russian and NOT US.

The video is not of US Blue Angels. Most were Russian jets flying where the folks speak the video again and you will clearly hear Russian words spoken. In two of the clips, you can clearly see soldiers in Russian uniforms. Low altitude flights by the Blue Angels are conducted over water, and not over populated urban areas. Also, several of the aircraft are Soviet era types.

I am fortunate enough to have a condo on Hutchinson Island....It's a great place and your photos captured it beautifully. Thanks for a great job.

Hutchinson Island is a barrier island stretching a narrow 23 miles between the cities of Fort Pierce to the North and Stuart to the South. It is actually located in Central Florida in the East coast. Toward the East it faces the Atlantic Ocean while toward the West it has the Indian River.

Hutchinson Island has an abundance of wildlife and beautiful beaches in addition to many places to see and local restaurants. It is a very popular vacation spot during our winter months and the weather tends to be very pleasant the whole year due to the ocean breeze that cools our hot summers.

Between April and September the island serves as the home to a turtle migration , I believe there are five species of them who come to lay their eggs in the sand. They are all well protected and local authorities place marks near their nests so that the public will be aware of their presence.

These are images I made there a couple of years ago while visiting. I used my Nikon D610 and two lenses, the 1974, 50mm f1.4 Nikkor S (single coated) and the 70-210 f4-5.6 AF. My tripod is a cheap Dolica aluminum tripod that I fitted with a Linhof ballhead.

I was not aware of the rock formation along the coast near Stuart as shown in the third image, I was guided there in an early morning in April. For that shot I used the Nikon 12-24 f4. Some of the images were enhanced using Topaz Adjust AI.
