this one was shot at 290mm with some cropping, but one of my favorites...Attachment 475582
I can see why it's a favorite. I'm guessing these are from Nellis? IIRC there's a place out there where you can catch the fighters coming out of a canyon and get some up close personal shots.

Aviation Nation at Nelis AFB last week....I have over 2000 pics but most of them are from this lens.....this pic here is taken on a K3 at 360mm and some good cropping in LR, had some serious focusing issues that day, but then again I am still very new to this lens...and I have some beautiful shots I walked away with...Attachment 475581
Great picture even if the focus is not spot on...

Yep Nellis, I would love to find out where this place is that you are talking about, I would definitely get out there and have the tripod set up...

I was a bit off on my geography. The location is Rainbow Canyon in Death Valley, 2-3 hours from Nellis. I've never been but, judging by the pictures, you can get some crazy good shots.

And once again my "skimming" habit bit me. You said Nellis so I didn't need to guess

UPS dropped off the D FA 150-450 today. I'm looking forward to getting out and trying to get some shots with this beast!

With the KP.

Best.

Great detail in that,. Even if it was at 450, too close for me though.

Thanks Nate. He was a small one and pretty skittish, that's about as close as I could get.
