+Jim Harrington I could not agree more. I've done as much as 8 seconds, and many of my long exposure aerial shots have been shown in some very prestigious magazines and books.

Over the summer I will be doing much more of this, but with a bit larger camera. I just need to find more time for my time.

Thanks for pinging my name! 
Who'da thunk that fairly sharp shots could be made at 1/2 second exposure time with a 90MM equivalent lens on a UAS? (aka drone) This was shot from above Saugus High School field on an overcast evening just prior to sunset. I know +Barry Blanchard made some at 1/2 second and I think one was published in PopPhoto. Popular Photography magazine went under by the way. I'm glad I didn't renew my subscription. #dji #inspire1x5 #aerialphotography

Whelp.. its time I re-enter the world of Google+. Its true, I have been that busy.

I say we start off with some flowers, but not mine this time. In fact, I am a judge in the +ViewBug "single flower" photo contest.

Check out the rules, (check out the prizes), then show me your best. Yes, I will be judging you.

G+ just asked me "what's new with me?"

My answer is best presented in video format.

Life is always full of surprises, so it's best I carry a camera to record those moments.

Soon all will be green again and the sunsets will be nothing short of stellar.
