Waiting for the ferry in the rain (best largest)  Sunday night I was in the ferry line-up waiting for the ferry from Mayne Island back to Vancouver.  It was raining and I noticed one ferry coming into the dock and starting to unload its cars onto the island, while the other one was waiting beside it to take us off the island.  The windshield was covered with rain drops and so I started to play with my D810 to try to capture some of the lights and reflections.  For this photo I set the camera on aperture priority, f16 and braced the camera on the steering wheel of my car to steady it. The raindrops on the windscreen resulted in a foreground bokeh and the ferry and cars were sharp, which was the effect I was trying to get.  The image is as shot with no filters or other manipulations.  You can see cars unloading in the background from the ferry on the left, and one or two people inside the upper deck of the ferry.  You can also see the backs of the cars in front of me, waiting to load onto the ferry on the right.  As a bonus, at the far left middle you can see a the lights of another ferry out in Trincomali Channel, just coming into view.  29/12/14 www.allenfotowild.com

12-29-2014 - F-86 Sabre  The North American F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the United States's first swept wing fighter which could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War.        Link to Photo  Without Frame

Now, that we are home, I am going through the plethora of photos that I took during our week-long Christmas vacation at my "happy place."   We drove over to Glendale, AZ - the hometown of American Idol, Jordin Sparks, to see Arizona's largest free holiday light display that began Thanksgiving weekend and will stay up through January 10, 2015 - the weekend of the Bowl games. I didn't get many great shots, but this one, I really liked. The  holiday lights, which now total 1.4 million, attracts more than 300,000 visitors every year.   Have a marvelous Monday!
