    Two photographers put their photos together (from different angles) of the same crash at the New Hampshire Mt. Washington Hillclimb.

    Ouch, I knew the Fiesta had a tipping issue in racing situations, but man that sucks.

    In related news, I hiked all the way up Mt Washington only to find out the race was on Sunday not Saturday when I hiked it. Didn't even get to see the cars practicing since Saturday was practice for the lower half of the hillclimb (Friday was top half). Got a good hike in I suppose.

    That's unfortunate. I was torn between the two days, up until I ended up moving into my new apartment on the same weekend.... Wish I went.

    I've been lucky to see that ship in real life. I was at the Rotterdam port entrance in Hoek van Holland when it came steaming in carrying a oil rig.

    Yeah, it was really, really big.

    That's what was going through my head like it can't just go further down cause the boat will float on the top of the water as the big one goes lower.....

    Way to make myself look stupid :lol:

    Local storm chaser is at it again. From some monsoon storms last night east of Tucson, right at sunset.

    Because it's amazing and cool?
    And besides if there's any other way to listen to music I'd like to hear it.

    I wasn't sure where to stick these shocking, sad and downright horrible photos. I could have posted them in a multitude of areas on GT Planet. However I think here may be better as it's amazing to see the raw power of the big ball of fire in the sky and the sheer stupidity of human beings.

    This is what happens when you view the eclipse with a very expensive lens and don't use a filter. More carnage found at the link below... warning gear heads, it's not for the faint of heart.

    I'm just shocked that there are people who seriously don't understand the power of sun and lenses. Did they never have a magnifying glass and chase ants as a kid?!

    Buying a solar filter was definitely worth it. If you're planning photographing the next eclipse, I recommend buying them a month in advance. They sold out real quick.
