Mashable: A Yellowstone Tourist Crashed a Drone Into One of the World’s Largest Springs.
#^@#%$@$$ The hot springs in Yellowstone rely on very fragile geologic phenomena. It could just calcify over and become part of the spring, or, if heavy enough, could sink and destroy or plug ‘plumbing.’ Trying to fish it out of superheated water, surrounded by fragile calcification, is a major operation. The Yellowstone park service should put up signs with an IM/phone number to report drone sightings immediately.

365/2; 217. Long, low sunset.
Different from the recent monsoon-cloud antics.
PDN: Up in the Sky - New DJI Drone Ready for Pro Camera Work.
18 minutes of flight time on a breezeless day, six feet off the ground. Ain’t much. But when’s the last time you sat through a ten minute single-shot? Hmmm? 60 seconds is a very long time in the video editing suite.
365/2: 216. Much-needed viga restoration.
Wasn’t originally done to code ... wood sitting on concrete, surrounded by 1” of flagstone and mortar. Like little ponds for collecting water. Ants took out 1/2 of the far post’s base ... it was starting to sink. Fixed now, new bases setting up.
365/2: 215. In the Southwest ...
... puddles must be seen, and appreciated.
BlessThisStuff: Motoped Survival Bike.
If it has enough HP to get out of its own way, I would love one for photo shoots. So many times I have to haul camera gear for a distance. I could strap this to the back of the car, and increase my range by quite a bit. I wouldn’t expect it to climb steep hills, of course ...
365/2: 214. Gallup red rocks driveby.
NM is exceptionally green, after all the rains. Especially Edgewood and Moriarty. Look like NJ!
365/2: 213 outtake 2. Went over to visit “Fifi.”
Got some good pix; I’ll post a gallery when I have time.
365/2: 213. “I’ve got my eye on you ... and that noisy black box you’re carrying ...”
And, you’re being stalked.
365/2: 212. Monochrome ... and yet, not.
BBC: In pictures - World War One battlefields 100 years on.
Seeing a lot of these galleries of late; better than most.
365/2: 211. Ten minutes ago. RUN FOR THE HILLS version.
Design You Trust: Fantastic Landscapes of Tuscany, Italy.
I need a photographic sabbatical here.

365/2: 210. Back end of this evening’s storm. #nmwx
In-house photo editor: “Another sky? Lame.”
Me: “But ... but ... look at it!”
365/2: 209 outtake. A quick pano of tonight’s storm.
So far, we got all of a dozen drops out of it. Sure looked dramatic, though. If you click through to Flickr, and stretch your browser out, there’s 8000+ pixels of goodness.
365/2: 209. “If I could only see ...”
MessyNessyChic: The Man who Documented the Last American Tribes.
Edward Curtis. Beautiful and evocative photos within.
365/2: 208. Sandra’s “galvanized rodent-proof garden.”
Two troughs propped up on cast iron tables. So far, rodent-free. Note the ‘wrinkled crinkled crumpled’ cress in the back trough - Sandra says it goes great on salad or eggs (omelets, etc.)
... the things we have to do to just grow a durned vegetable ...
c|net: A tour of the Royal Air Force Museum.
75 photos, all great. Some examples of German WWII aircraft that I didn’t realize still existed in physical form [HE-111, ME-110].
Contemplating the sadness of an empty martini glass ...
365/2: 206. Too hot to shoot anything else!
365/2: 205. Impromptu hatrack.
Still need to buy that proper summer cowboy hat.
The link’s spelling (should be -ers). Just beautiful engineering. I miss props on commercial airliners; they were like white noise for the mind. I could zone out for an entire flight, watching them.
