Danny,

I enjoyed your pictures. The ones from Italy are remarkable, but the photos containing fog are especially appealing to me. I like how you turn some of them into paintings.

Thanks Arthur. Many of the images were post processed with various filters. There are also many that have an added texture overlay (or multiple overlays).

I never did either! Wow! The photo looks incredible. So, Ray, what then? How do you hunt down the rocket?

Here is a shot I took from my driveway, just before first light one January morning.





When I open the small file size version, I sometimes see some unevenness in the deep blue sky. When I print the large file version 11 x 14, it is all blue.

The rocket and payload descend separately on parachutes. Lower altitude flights, they usually land fairly close to the launch site. I put small, warbling "beepers" in them to make it easier to find. On my larger rockets I use a 90 decibel siren.

There are radio tracking systems too, but they're not cheap, and I don't do the high altitude flights often enough to be worth the expense. I did borrow one from a friend a couple times, including the flight that took the photo I posted here.

Well, it's not the best pic around having been taken from a cel phone, but kinda cute never the less.
My daughter's Shi Tzu Lance, pulled a leg muscle and wasn't feeling well, soooo, Justice, her Bengal tomcat figured he would comfort the dog.

That is really cute, every cat should have a dog. They make such good pets.

One of my favorite grain elevators. It has a little bit of everything as far as construction style goes. Located in Ione, Oregon along the abandoned Union Pacific Heppner branch.
