    Plane Spotters... help with ID on this jet??

    I found the info on the jet by doing searches with different variations of the plane model and the number that was on the side of it and found the corporation that owns it,but nothing about why it's here in the area. It's owned by a company out of Henderson Nevada that contracts with the...

    Plane Spotters... help with ID on this jet??

    I am guessing that it was over in Tacoma at JBLM. After it flew circles here for and hour it made a straight line for over that direction, then came back about 40 minutes later and made another hours worth of circling passes. The darned thing almost hit the moon.

    Plane Spotters... help with ID on this jet??

    OK, this guy has been flying circles around the house for the last three days. South Pierce County all around Eatonville and the west side of Mt Rainier. Looks like it heads back to JBLM when it needs fuel after flying around for an hour, then comes back 40 minutes later. Anyone know anything...

    Mt Rainier sunrise Saturday morning.

    I hate getting up early in the morning, so it took me getting a 24hr overtime shift to get me out before sunrise. It was well worth the effort as I left early enough to stop and get some pictures of the pre-sunrise light that lit up the sky and Clear Lake. After I had taken a few pictures then...

    Saturday's view of "Mt Seattle Sehawks".

    It's only going to be called that for another hour or so, but here is Mt Rainier yesterday evening when it was almost all covered in clouds and cleared out in about 35 minutes. it is amazing at how fast not only the light changes, but also the cloud cover sometimes.

    Christmas Birds

    It's good to see birds in blue, the only ones around here are the stellars jays. Christmas day when I was at the parents I got the eagles, but I did not spend any time out at their feeders where they have at least a dozen hummingbirds dive bombing anything that moves near the feeder. Seems to...

    Eagle Hot Spot

    Only a couple up the Puyallup leg off of Oroville Road, the salmon are hitting the Carbon pretty heavy so food is easier there. I've never seen so many eagles there before, my parents have to keep a close eye on their little mutt when they let him out. But there were about a dozen or so cow elk...

    A "different" view of Mt Rainier

    A little something "off the wall" (bad pun intended). The reflection in the window of the neighbor's garage this evening. It looked like someone hung a painting on the side of their garage.

    Eagle Hot Spot

    They do come in close, but I had to hurry back to the house for dinner. (OK, I admit it, I was also a weenie out there in just short sleeves in the fog and cold). Here's a pair that came by and I had to pick up the 400 with monopod and all to swing over my head to get them.

    Eagle Hot Spot

    Right now there is a great gathering of eagles on the Carbon river above the fish hatchery in Orting. In just five minutes behind my mom and dad's on the river I counted over 60 eagles. This picture is not the best, but look close, there are 13 eagles in the trees in this one shot taken across...

    The park is closed... but the views are not.

    First shot was the 70-200 @ 115mm... second shot is the 400mm... third is the 400m with 1.4TC on board. Quite a colorful sunset tonight...

    The park is closed... but the views are not.

    The national park has the gates closed, but at least we can see the mountain from all over the place on this wonderful Saturday. Harsh noon light, but it still looks grand with it's new coat of snow. Wide... Close ... And closer...
