Default October 2007 Photo of the Month Contest.

Fall is upon us and the event season is starting to wind down. There are still great opportunities for photos this month. The Tucson Shoot Out is underway, there are fun-flies, and fly-in all over the place.

So grab your cameras and get out there. When you aren't the one on the sticks or the spotter, that's the time to be clicking away.

Here is a couple recent photos of mine for inspiration.

Here is Matt with his new bird, and a shot from the Terre Haute Air Fair.

Here is my first entry for the October contest. This is Paul Soha of St. Charles, Missouri, flying his Avant Carbon Extreme perilously close to the ground; obviously inverted! Unless the rules state otherwise, there may be more as this should be a great time of the year for pictures.



Thanks! Shaun

Well here are some of my first tries. My inspiration was Operation Market Garden. I was also partially inspired by the moive A Bridge Too Far:
So here Goes! These were taken at the 82nd Airborne Division musuem at Ft. Bragg. Of course the good old skies of grey. Make me want to re-up sometimes....almost

The full size pictures are much more clear. I have a 10MP camera and it shoots around 1600x1200 default.

These aren't great, but the school newspaper is doin an article on my obsession, and here are some pics they took. Take a look at the KM one. You can see the shadow of the prop on the cowl. Oh, and take a good look at the next to last one and guess what happened right after it was taken....lol
