Darryl's books, in my opinion, are the best. You only need one.

Very cool, will give it a listen. I jumped on board of the Floyd bandwagon with DSotM and played the grooves off The Wall. But lost interest after than. They were a little too progressive/psychedelic for my tastes and as they drifted more in the direction, the less interest I had.

#264725 My other hobby (I)...

That is so impressive, Herman!

I love the 747 you posted for Mark.

Take it from the Edmonton Airport and do a fly by over Toronto! ;) 

Do a circuit around the CN Tower in downtown Toronto. This is a very impressive program!

I am a big fan of B&W as well.  Much prefer it for dramatic subjects.

#264720 Moon and Mars pics

Posted by Art on 11 October 2020 - 10:20 PM

That is so cool.  Hoping to have a cloud free night in the next few days. This is when Mars will be the closest.  Well done!

Very impressive, Herman.  I just showed off your cockpit to my wife who is equally impressed.


You mention you saw the desert from 37,000 feet.  


How low can you go?

What details can you see?



#264621 Sand Sculptures - Theme WW2

Posted by Art on 04 September 2020 - 11:14 AM

That is an amazing display, thanks for sharing that, Herman.


For long lasting sand sculptures you need quarry sand. You can look up there formula, there is a mix that makes it bond and weather better.  Regardless, they don't last forever in the elements (unless they are perhaps treated with a special coating of some sort).

#264619 My only shot with a 500 f/4

Very nice, Bill, you made good use of the opportunity.

#264519 Nikon Z5 vs Z6

Posted by Art on 13 August 2020 - 10:30 PM

Thanks, Herman. A good read.


Nicely done little camera.  Looks like they are going for the more serious entry level Amateur photographer.


One very important thing I am not impressed with .... 4.5 fps.  Way too slow for my needs.  Looked good until I read that.

Oh well, still looking for a compelling reason to jump into mirrorless... haven't found it yet.
