    Oooooh, nice! I approve!

    That last one, especially, has a very ethereal feel to it. Awesome work!

    It seems the Space Station was in that area of the sky around 5-7pm Friday.

    Here's a special one for you aviation buffs.

    Possibly the rarest I ever shot in my life:
    [​IMG]
    (click for big)

    For the curious:
    The MiG-29K project was initiated in the late 1970s as Product 9.31 when the Soviet Navy developed a requirement for a supersonic carrier-based fighter. To meet this requirement, the Mikoyan design bureau designed a navalised version of the land-based MiG-29B, fitted with a stronger undercarriage and a reinforced tail section with an arrestor hook, along with a new folding wing of larger surface area. The first prototype of Project 9.31, numbered ‘311 Blue’ first flew in 1988, and was subject to extensive trials on shore and then off the carrier Tbilisi (now Kuznetsov).

    311 Blue is unique, as it retains the old-style bubble canopy of the MiG-29B and looks largely similar to the land-based variant. By contrast, the current production MiG-29K/KUB (Product 9.41) is based on the later MiG-29M, with a new wing and almost completely redesigned fuselage and canopy.

    311 Blue was last seen active in 2004, following which it was not seen in public for years. However, in 2010, the aircraft was stripped of engines and avionics and delivered aboard INS Vikramaditya as a "dummy" MiG-29K to test certain equipment and train the crew in aircraft handling. But no one noticed this, so effectively it "disappeared" after 2004, until I stumbled upon it in the hangar of the ship!

    That's awesome, Stone!

    I'll pass the link on to Michael Krepon who writes about south Asian strategic affairs quite a bit on Arms Control Wonk and other places.

    Here are a couple of mine from Monday. This was an old 4 masted sailing ship that was filled with dirt and is used as a marina breakwater in Anacortes WA. Using the Google Earth measuring tool, the wreck is about 250 feet long by 60 feet wide and is probably the best preserved ship of this size and era around. As you can see, the stern is collapsed, but the rest of it is in remarkably good shape.

    According to Google, she's the schooner La Merced, built in 1917 for Standard Oil Company. She was used in the international petroleum trade until 1926 when she went to Alaska as a floating cannery. in 1966 she was moved to Anacortes and partially filled with rocks to form the breakwater at the marina. The La Merced is one of only four 4 masted schooner hulls remaining in the US.

    The diagonal marks in the corners are from my lens hood being rotated 45 degrees and me not noticing it. Oops.

    Well, not personally, but we both write for Arms Control Wonk and have traded email a time or two in the past.


    That's my girlfriend, Leslie. I'm much larger and uglier.

    I didn't know you wrote on defence and stuff too. Makes sense, though. If you ever need someone to bounce idea off of, or anything like that, you know where to find me :thumb:

    :hehe:

    In my defence it's a small-ish picture and I couldn't make out s**t. :lol:

    There was a good full moon the other night with quite a bit of cloud so I shot out to try and take some pictures of it, was a bit rushed as I had dinner on the table waiting for me but I'm pretty happy with how this one came out:
