Mumbles knows the city better than any human alive I think! I'm in the same boat as you about itching to get out more than life allows right now. I'll have to pay more attention to this thread.

So where are the shots??:lol:

Hey Bryan! We are neighbors! Call me sometime! I was hooked up for Sat., but given my advanced age, cold etc., probably best I didn't make it!

But play hookey some day and we will get out early or late and make some images!

Nice, guys, nice. Sorry i should have had a few more varied locations this time. I guess since i'm so sick of the usual sites, that doesn't mean everyone else is. When we do this again, let's get a consensus of ideas on locations.

Brendan, let me know if you schedule another SnoMo trip! That was a blast!

Yeah, i'd like to do the snowmobile thing again. I'm running low on personal time, so i don't think i could coordinate it, but i would certainly attend if before April. I'm a bit busy with this whole Doorhof workshop. Which btw, i believe we've secured a studio finally, so it's come full circle. If anyone would like to attend, highly, highly recommended.

And we'll do another helicopter thing, once the green comes back in the Spring. I know 3-4 of you expressed interest again. I'm certainly ready. Just remember we need to go up in sets of 3.

I was just thinking about you the other day when I drove by Bella Pasta! I get out about once a month (it's tough to get out at all with the baby)or so for a sunrise down in Southern RI along the coast with some nsop guys. I'll let you know next time I plan on going. Actually, anyone is welcome to go.

If you're doing southern RI let me know! I'm living in Newport, and need more excuses to get myself up early and using my camera.

Brendan:

I clicked the link to sign up. but the Pay Pal button just opens Pay Pal account. No link to seminar. Why is the seminar/workshop one dollar more than if purchased separately? I must be missing something.

You need a higher density of Eagles than Quabbin has to get decent shots unless there is a small feeding area. Quabbin is vast and I doubt a 400 would get you much.

Salt Lake City end of Jan or first week Feb, does have a few places where they are concentrated.

Also this time of year there are such spots along the Norther Mississippi, And I like Conowingo Dam in MD,

Yes, I am in for Birds (both types) anytime!

I heard there are Snowy Owls at Plum Island?? That is a bird I would love to shoot! I always thought you had to go North, maybe the Ottowa area to get them!

I have only been to Plum a few times and I guess I just don't know where to go cause I don't see much!

As for the Puffins on Seal Island, as I said, I really would like to get some Moms with fish in their bills for the chicks. I am trying to to get Captain Andy, to give me a high point date for that trip.

Other than that, I would also go another date just for the pure joys of shooting the many, many Puffins, Razorbills, Seals etc that just overwhelm you. Looking forward to it!! Big time.

If anyone wants to join me, just let me know and we can start a list. We could get as many as 15-18 on boat and price has been $100 each for several years. So worth it!

On one trip I went on midweek, we were about 7 people total and my Grandson and I had a blind to ourselves! Steve & Mrs, Vin, Brendan & Nat ??

Yeah i just emailed him to take a look at it. He'll have it fixed soon. It'll be good to see you! Finally. It's going to be pretty sweet. Some vendors have recently sweetened the deal and we are going to have a proper studio with roof terrace. Going to be some good portfolio worthy stuff there.

I'll update you when it's set.
