Conowingo Dam Bald Eagles

10-ConowingoBaldEagles-8739, originally uploaded by Kadath.

Cross it off the bucket list!

----See Bald Eagles in their native habitat, see em fish and fight! Get a killer pic or two.

Now I gotta say when I was taking these I was crying that I didn't have a 400mm or longer lens plus a D3s like everyone else there, but I think the 70-300 got me some nice shots too!

Zombie Self Portrait 2010

10-ZombieWalk-8550, originally uploaded by Kadath.

Halloween always makes me remember we are all mortal here:
Enjoy and be thankful for what you have.
Make things better for those around you.
Don't put off those things you want to get done in life.

As my favorite restaurant says, 'Life is short, eat dessert first!'

Mess with the bull...

10-Nemacolin-5591, originally uploaded by Kadath.

And you'll get the horns.

I think I rode for shorter than anyone else. The 6 year old got 10x longer a ride as I did. =)

The rest of the week was even more fantastic.

It's been a loooooong time since I've had this much fun with a new company. Thanks and a big /salute to all my new coworkers!

At the worst possible time, late at night on the windiest night of the year, but she is launched and tethered! Will she be christened "Whatever 2"? Only time will tell!

1Football under the lights

10-FootballWall-6877, originally uploaded by Kadath.

Stinks. Was shooting at the fastest my camera and lens combo would go, a 'fake' ISO 6400 with the lens wide open at f4.5 and still couldn't get the shutter speed faster than 1/100th of a second... Oh well... Plenty of motion blur still in here, but at least Lightroom does an awesome job of pulling the noise and grain to rest.

Not bad for a first attempt I guess, needs more randomization tho I guess.

Eddie got some good tackles too, but he always seems to be on the wrong side of the field for me.
