...Or would it be rejected. This photograph pretty well demonstrates what the Denver authorities feel towards our hobby, however the sign itself is a few miles off airport land (it's actually the border of a farmer's field) and has nothing to do with the airport.

But it is pretty much the vibe we're picking up from the authorities.



Sorry, this was the biggest version I could find.

sorry phil, but I was trying to be serious.

It really sucks that we only get a good half-hour in before we get chased away, or we pay for economy.

And Me and Ryan Richter drive about 30 miles to get there, and for teenagers, that's kind of a long way.

Yeah, I can certainly relate to how frustrating that can be.

Is there supposed ot be a sign in the pic or something? I dont quite understand the picture.

If you look below and left of the main control tower you will see a "no tresspassing" sign.

Eric,
That sign has been up for ages by the looks of it. There are 100's of old "keep out", and "No Tresspassing" signs out there.

I'd have to go with "no", not a good picture. Could you take a few more steps back maybe? LOL


Why didn't you just go to one of the other spots?

I just thought it would make a good pic. At the time I took it, I wasn't exactly using good "photographer technique," so I didn't even notice the sign until I uploaded the pic on my computer.

We did, This was taken before I met up with Richter, and before our confrontation with the non-english-speaking security guard. After that we went out to 25 to catch departures.

Eric,
Do me a favor. Keep track of every time you get stopped, checked, asked to move, etc. If possible, get a card from the officer or security guard that asks you to leave. Make sure you note the time of day, and location if you can.

I think we should document some of this stuff for use in the future should the need arise.

Can do, Chief.

Though I don't know when I'll be up there next, my last day of school is next thursday, so I might be up on Friday since I don't have work,

But I'm still saving the greens for a longer lens.

Any recommendations lens-wise?

Eric

If you just want something quick go for Canon's regular 75-300mm lens without the IS. It has the same optics in it from everywhere I have read about it.

From seeing your shots of late, I guess the one pointer I can give that will help the most is get the weather/lighting in your favor. Go out on a clear cloudless day. Aim for early mornings or early evenings. That will give you the best time to play around and learn. You will never learn a whole lot when that high cirrus layer is overhead. That is the worst! Also, Try out the approaches to the 16s and the 35s. You will draw the least amt of attention there and get the most traffic there.

Oh yeah, one more tip. Something has to fill the frame. It doesnt have to be an airplane. I have one with my 2.0 MP C700 with a tiny plane in front of a huge Cb. The plane may be small but that cloud filled the frame. It is going to be nearly impossible getting a shot on without filling the frame with something.
