Can not get much closer to the Airstream Colour Scheme.

This is the reason we don't go anywhere in the summer.

She is an oldy but goodie - a couple of more years and she will be 25 years old. Has the OMC 800 series with the Stringer Stern Drive. Yep with that finiky and poorly designed Tilt Clutch - hence the two month delay in launching this year.

Those little silver sweeties in the back ground look pretty envious right about now. Just waiting on PK to get home so we can go for a cruise and finaly tie her up at the dock. (latest ever!!)

Rodney, good to see you! Reminds of the time I took my fully loaded TV through a culvert under the Interstate in the Sinbad area of the San Rafael Swell (I-70 40 miles west of Green River). Man, things do start to feel a little cramped...

This is Scenic Beach state park, north of Bremerton. Nice campsites and short walk to the rocky beach. You look across the sound to Olympic National Park.

How about listing the camera, lens and settings (Fstop, shutter speed).
Nice photo Zepplinium. My guess is 28 or 35mm lens?

Way off. but what I'm using isn't very common. (it's like cheating)

I'm using a 17mm on a full size sensor. 17-40mm Canon on an EOS-5D. I used to use a 45mm on a 4x5, which is the equivalent of about 14mm (it's not linear, but you get the idea).

I "practiced" with the 17-40 on my EOS-20D before I made the decision to go to the 5D. On the 20D, 17mm is more like 28mm, due to the sensor size. It just wasn't cutting it.

I can't give you the f-stop and speed--I took those as snapshots, so it's not recorded. I recall most of the evening sunsets were around 120th at f7-9 at ISO 100.

But it's not all in the camera. I take the files into Photoshop and adjust the levels, which has a contrast enhancing effect. I can also darken some areas, like clouds if they're too bright, and lighten others. I usually don't enhance the color--tint and saturation look good 90% of the time.

The photo in post #32 appears the way it does because it was nearly dark, exposure on the order of 1/2 sec, and when the brightness was brought up a little, the colors were naturally saturated and contrast between what light was left in the sky and the nearby earth was large.

BTW, the photo in post #61 actually looked like that to the eye. It was one of those ominous storms with lots of dark off to the right side of the photo. The sun was directly in the center, shinning through a thin veil, so it was very bright, but quickly fell off at the sides.

Actually you can give the f-stop since you are using photosho anyway....

With the photo open, just go to file on the menu bar and down to file info. It should list "description, camera data 1, camera data 2 etc." go to camera data 1. Viola!

ADK, love your teardrop. I was looking very seriously at building one from plans when I stumbled on my first Airstream. That's history. Looks like you're letting the purchasing decisions be made by the right person!

Here's what it looks like to be in the butt end of the San Juan ferry, looking forward... ...Mbuti loved the trip!

LOL.. at first I was drooling thinking that was your AS in a fine storage facility along with your boat and selection of tv's

Would have loved to build our tear or restore a vintage AS.. but alas I am better at a keyboard than working with tools.

So instead of a teardrop you now have a 31', a 27' and an 18'? Thats quite a constrast to a tear!
