3/30/08 Chasing Update

Today, we chased in Western Oklahoma just south of I-40. Im proud to say we targeted around 10 miles away from the main storms of the day. We chased a few different supercells well into the night and observed several wall clouds and funnels but no tornadoes. We will chase Central and Eastern Oklahoma tommorow before bolting back to Denver in an attempt to make class the next day. Pictures from today's chase will follow when I get back to Denver.

Luongo Pulled During AV'S Ownage!!!

This is a slideshow depicting the struggles of the Canucks. All of these are shot from the 3rd level with my 200mm f/2.8L and a 1.4x tele-converter. I really need a camera with a spot meter to get consistent exposures. These are roughly edited.

Milan Hejduk had 2 goals and an assist tonight, earning 1st star of the game next to Peter Forsberg and Paul Stastny. Ben Guite scores a goal as Luongo flops in his net.

Cody McLeod goes 5-hole on Luongo to continue the 4th line production.

The AVS celebrate the timely goal by #55 Cody McLeod.

A late scrum shows the frustrations of the Canucks.

This pretty much sums up the night for a HOSER!!!

3/20/08 Possible chase next week

The longrange GFS model is hinting at a possible setup in w/c OK or north TX. Quality moisture will begin working northward by early next week. This is right on time with last year's March 28th setup. hopefully this will pan out unlike the last time I looked at the GFS this far out.

2/22 Snowboard Shots

Nothing seemed to be going on today so I headed up to the Ruby Hill Snowboard Park to get some shots for my photojournalism class. My buddy Kyle tagged along so I could get some shots of him on the boxes. Overall it was a pretty decent shoot despite crappy light and a severely cramped park. It was tough to isolate my subjects from the ample distractions in the backgrounds. I utilized my Sigma 10-20mm and Canon 200mm 2.8L lenses. I tried a few with fill flash against the sun with little success.
