Schnauzer at play

A9ii with the 100-600 shooting at 1/1000 to capture the dog in action. It was late in the day so the sun had set which allowed her face to show. I ran the pictures through Topaz Denoise to clean them up and make them look better. Pretty happy with how they came out, could have done more to make them a little less noisy.

Veeam Warning 1327 while doing upgrade to version 11.x

I was upgrading the veeam environment to version 11 and I was getting an error when trying to do the upgrade. At some point the main hard drive for the install had been changed and there were registry entries for Veeam that were causing issues with the upgrade. The error I was getting was:

Warning 1327.Invalid Drive H:

Really not an informative error. I searched through Google and couldn’t find anything aside from some references to checking the configuration. After doing that I wasn’t able to find anything I ended up having to go through the registry and all of the Veeam entries and finding one reference for Veeam pointing to the H:. Really painful and you would think they could make this error a little easier to find.


P-40 Warhawk flyover at Planes of Fame

Saturday Planes of Fame did another one of their flyovers. This time it was their war tested P-40 Warhawk that had seen in action in WW2. They took the plane up and did a couple of passes over the crowd.

Andree Clark Bird Refuge

A few weeks ago we were up in Santa Barabara for a vacation so I went over to the Bird Refuge in the morning to do some shooting. It was an overcast day so I was up at some pretty high ISOs. However I was able to catch some of the tern’s doing their morning feedings. It was cool to watch them go across the water and eat. I edited the shots in Lightroom and then took them into Topaz to correct for the noise.

Joshua Tree Astrophotography 8-7-21

Found a weekend after the new moon to go out and shoot the Milky Way. Figured this would be my last trip out for the year until I had to wait until next year to do it again. It was a clear night and the Milky Way was beautiful in the sky. I was surprised to see the number of people that were out there also doing photography. I am pretty happy with how the shots came out, the only issue being Palm Springs in the distance and that everything was sitting on top of that glow. I might try to do a light filter next year.


Last of the shots from the hummingbirds in my backyard from the last week. I decided to get rid of my feeder as I just can’t see feeding non hummingbirds and they were consuming most of the feeder. The poor hummingbirds were not able to get to anything. It was fine while it lasted, may be I will do it again next year.

Corsair F4U-1A

Planes of Fame flew their Corsair F4U-1A over a couple of days last week. It was nice to see the plane up in the air, took some pictures of it and then edited them in Lightroom. Still out practicing getting ready for the first airshows of the season that will be coming up soon. Rally excited for Airshows to be happening again and looking forward to being out seeing the planes fly.
