An old Model B farm tractor that is sitting on the top of the hill at the family farm property. She has been sitting up there as long as I can remember, some 40 plus year at least. In the past I have posted some different images of her in winterish type setting with snow and all but this is a first with the fall. In the grand scheme of things My father still has bream of pulling her down off the hill to work on her, getting her up and running some day or at least to take a good look at her to see if it's even possible.
This is one of those neat images that I came away with this past summer up in the Thousand Island Region of New York State. These two boats look like they were heading right at each other but in fact they were in no real danger of hitting each other. They did pass close enough for the little sale boat to have some good chop to go through, ruff water. The large boat was a thing of beauty and probably had one hell of a pries tag connected to it. That's the same one on the bottom as well. \
Well, this shoot should look familiar. It's the header that I've bean using for the last couple months on my main page. This group of aircraft if you don't know are the United State Air Force's Flight Demonstration Team called The Thunderbirds. They were the main attraction at the Rochester Airshow last year. I aridgenaly thought that I would brake this post up into two seporit one but I changed my mind at the last minute. I hope you enjoy all 30 of these images of the USAF F-16 Thunderbirds as they preform and fly over the flit line at Rochester Airport, NY. I really enjoy going to airshows, maybe I'll find some to go to this year.
The plane with the big teeth at the Rochester Airshow this year. "I loved this one", the colors and the art work on the front nose. The pilot gave a nice performance with the aircraft at the airshow and about the right time. The sun had just started coming out in patchy spots. As in previous post there is more of a description of the aircraft at the end of this post from the Rochester Airshow site. Hope you enjoy some of the shots I took of this lovely aircraft :)
I'm taking another trip but not in a plan. This South West Jet was taking of in between performances at the Rochester Airshow back in August. That's the only thing in common with my trip tomorrow, Rochester. I'm going Salmon Fishing with my oldest son and some friends in Rochester Today. It's almost 2am now and I have too hit the road by 2:45am to get this trip started. I have not bean able to get any sleep but I'm hopping some of the others are willing to drive at least half of the 3+ hour journey. Hope to ketch some monsters. Anyway I thought that this was a neat shoot. Enjoy your day, Michael :)
On Fathers Day we had an unexpected treat! My oldest son M-C saw these two jet trails in the sky as we were preparing to go to a family function. They were in close proximity to one an other as one was trailing the other. . Turns out to be two B-2 Bombers going westwards. Never seen one before and I wished I picked up the camera earlier. This is more of a close up from the top image.
