More amazing is that EVERY one of my 107 images in the database are taken from EXACTLY the same spot !! .... I stand on a little green electricity box, so that I can see over the fence at KSAN! ...This just show's you that the different angles and backgrounds can make for very interesting images, even though they're ALL taken from exactly the same location.

Hope you enjoyed my little self "pat on the back". If you're ever in San Diego ... give us a shout and we'll grab a beer !!

Happy spotting ....... Shaun

Hey Shaun,

It's been great to see some photos from SAN now that I've moved even further away from home! Your recent batch of photos with the towering cloud formations were awesome. Your location will get better and better now that the summer has ended - better lighting & less heat haze. On the other hand it will also get dark earlier...

What's the story with the FedEx Cessna? Was that a rarity or is that a new scheduled cargo service? In any case, congrats on your achievement!

Yep

I hit the century this weekend as well. I now just need my hits to reach a century and I'll be happy!! Sadly, not too many people here are interested in GA and the smaller airfields - I suppose it doesn't have the same impact as the big jets. This one isn't the hundreth, but is a recent shot I particularly like:

Congratulations! Only recently got there myself. Hope to get out and shoot a bit more soon!

Shaun,

Congrats on your first 100. Looks like you're off to a good start.

Having background in your shots make them a million times better in my own opinion. It's a great variable and is a great way to show off your home airport.

Keep it up!

Congratulations. Those are some nice shots too. But tell me, is it really true?

The 100th RJ is your 100th upload?

I'm not even going to tell you that when I clicked on it, it had 100 viewers.
(cue the Twilight Zone music.)

That box must be over by the Coast Guard station? I used to work for Jimsair many years ago!

BTW that RJ with the giant cumulus behind it - that is really good. I'd be tempted to play with the colors to make the cloud a more ominous shade. I like it a lot. Could be a cover on an Aviation Weather text.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

Hey all, thanks for your kind comments !!

Man, it was a mission getting to 10 uploads but now that I'm a little more experienced with my camera equipment and post-processing, it'll be a little easier getting to 500 !!

Congrats to the other Century and Double Centurions !!

...btw Slam ... i seriously didn't know that this was the 100th RJ !! Wow, you gotta be kiddin' me...thx, for the info !

....back to taking pics Boys, onwards and upwards to the next 900 ...Shaun
