Yes, I’m behind the 8-ball.

I’ll catch up with stuff here shortly.  Post-Concorso, there’s just so much to get accomplished in a very short period of time.  Links will increase in frequency gradually once I get the Award Winner images finalized.

5,747 images taken in the last three days.

There’ll be probably about 2000 polished keepers out of all that. Most of the extra chaff was in taking extra shots while in a moving vehicle. I definitely need to rethink my hard drive setup on the office system ... a RAID is called for.

Santa Fe Concorso weekend starts today for me.

I may even be late with my 365’s.  At worst, I’ll catch up on Monday. Wish me luck! There’s a 40 percent chance of storms (with small hail) that could really bollix things up on Sunday.

Archaeology News Network: New dinosaur from New Mexico has relatives in Alberta.

The horns on the back of the skull are thick and curve downwards, and the snout has a mixture of flat and bumpy scales—an unusual feature for an ankylosaurid.” No doubt the snout was caused by the enormous amounts of prehistoric green chile eaten ... (joking, just joking) ...

Trying the new 16-35 F/4 IS this year.

My brief tests show it’s damned sharp. Excited.  The extra 2.8 of the non-IS version doesn’t buy you much in a wide angle.
