Through The Lens 37 – Fireworks!

Ever wondered what 709 seconds of fireworks looks like?  Here’s all of Illuminations from center stage at EPCOT in one shot.  Not perfect, but not bad for a first try.  Looking forward to trying it again later this year.

Through The Lens 36 – Snow on the Narrow Gauge

Since we’re in the middle of a heatwave here in the mid-atlantic region, I thought I’d share one from winter’s past.  This one was taken on a private photo charter on the Durango & Silverton back in February 2011.  Enjoy and try to stay cool out there!

Through The Lens 35 – Boeing Turns 100

B-29 Superfortress - Fifi

Today is the 100th Birthday of the Boeing Company, so I thought I’d share a photo of one of my favorite aircraft, the B-29 Superfortress which was first introduced in 1944, helping the United States win WWII.  Currently “Fifi” is the only flying B-29, but if things go well on Sunday, “Doc” will become the second flying example.

Through The Lens 34 – Monocacy Battlefield

14th New Jersey Monument - Sunrise

Since tomorrow is the 152nd Anniversary of the Battle of Monocacy, I thought I’d share one from the archives – Sunrise at the 14th New Jersey Regiment Monument taken on the morning of the 150th Anniversary, July 9th, 2014.

Note: Due to technical difficulties user error this posted a week late.

Through The Lens 33 – Happy Independence Day!

Yeah, I know I’m a couple of days early, but with fireworks displays scheduled throughout the holiday weekend, it seemed appropriate. This one is one of my favorites from the Capitol Fourth fireworks show on the Mall in Washington DC. If the weather cooperates, I may head down again this year.
