Welcome to the next installment of That Was the Week that Was. The rules are here. I want to call this the Thanksgiving TW3 but as our friends in the GWN have already done their Thanksgiving and some other members don't do this thing, I wont call it that. With your indulgence, I'm pushing this to just under 2 weeks. That's because I won't be online portions of the coming weekend.

Because of this, you can post 12 images in this TW3. Love to see some scenes of the season and or celebration but I'm not declaring any theme here either. So, off we go to TW3.90

Let's get this party started with this shot:

Veteran's Day. Went to the local parade today and saw lot's of bands, airplanes, cars, troops, vets etc. but this one lone bloke on parade was announced as a tribute to members of the British Commonwealth who served in WWII. I was really touched by this as the rest of the parade was very USA centric!

First, congrat's Tim. As most know I lost my D700, which I still can't get over though the D800 will be tested soon. [waiting on my lens to be repaired by Nikon] I have ben shooting my D7000 and today I even brought out the K20. Here are a few shoots from omne of my favorite locations called Shovel Creek. It is 50 miles in and takes all day. Cheers and good luck to all this week/ JIM

Awesome stuff Jimbo and glad you are back in the saddle again!

Tim, great VD coverage...that didn't sound right.

Hot off the press from me:


Before The Dawn

These old pilings are remnants of a pier built in the late 1800's when this spot was an active fishing and whaling station.

I also found this shot in a 1947 movie, "Lady From Shanghai" (Orson Welles/Rita Hayworth); if you freeze the clip at 00:10, you will see the same view:




Here are two from today...

S.S. Minnow II



Windfarm Sunrise


yes, that is the sun coming up on the horizon.

Alright guys, excellent stuff right out of the gate. Jim, I like the Shovel creek series and it was worth the drive. I'm more partial to Heavy Flow than the other two but I'm not sure why. They are all good.

Mike - Love the Sausalito pic and I remember our shoot there many months ago. Well done. Saw the Minnow shot already on flickr and I just love the colors you've captured with that one too. Great start to the TW3.

Keep'em coming, make my life tough to judge these.

(I'm ignoring the VD remarks... ;) )

Cool shot of the bug-eye Sprite. The people here did "a Vet's in Vettes" thing. I'll get some pictures of that up.

Great start! Jimbo, I'm with Tim, Heavy Flow is a fantastic shot. Something to do with the perspective? Or the pure white and pure black elements? Excellent photo.

Mike: Before the Dawn is an amazing shot. That colour is magnificent! Absolutely print-worthy.

DRN: Excellent shots of the Veteran's Day parade! Really love the expression you captured on the Scotsman, just makes me wonder what the story is there.

Don't worry, the quality of your photos make up for your other indiscretions. ;)

Your windmill sunrise is a very nice addition by the way. I need to get out shooting in the early am more.
