The band members are Carlos Elizalde on vocals and hand percussion, Jose Angel Amador on vocals and keys, Blaine Hoopes on keys, saxophone, vocals and various woodwinds. Derek Rolando on congas & timbales, Brian Camara on drums & percussion, Ray Uribes on bass & vocals. And Carlos Hernandez (Los) on guitar.

Turtle Bay Oahu

Turtle Bay is located on the North Shore of Oahu. Green Sea Turtles are seen year round basking in the sun. Also in the waves, when the waves break you can see many turtles in the waves almost as if they are surfing on the underside of the waves. The last three images are an attempt to capture that unsuccessfully. I guess I will have to go back and spend more time there.

Sweet C and H Drone

For years I have felt limited by the physical location (if only I could be 100 yards over there and or 50 feet in the air). The answer to that is a drone. This was the first real flight I was all alone for quite a while then all hell broke loose. A train blowing its horn came then cars came with some pretty rough looking guys and then the wind. I had the drone set up to take a series of 5 bracketed images, but with all the chaos (the drone drifting, getting used to the controls, getting attention...etc.) I was rapid fire and I think I cut off the sequence and only got a couple of images. Luckily it was 5:00pm or so and the lighting was OK and I was able to use a single exposure. I have yet to attempt an HDR with the drone. I shot down and had to correct for vertical distortion a problem I have had when shooting up at a building this is a first (shooting down). I shot down to emphasize the sign on top of the building. I have shot this building in the past in the post Crockett HDR in those images the puddles and the train cars are emphasized.


This second image was shot midway up the building and required no correction for distortion was required.


This is my first video best viewed in 1080HD and Full Screen.
