Strange Sony Cam Failure
I had the strangest problem with my Sony A7r soon after I took this shot. I had on the 70-200mm and was holding it the window. Cold dot com. But I don’t think that was the problem. Anyway, there was this little flap-thing that fell down in front of the sensor, and I could see it flapping around in the wind! Now, the only thing out of the hole in the chopper was the wind, so I couldn’t figure out how it was blowing something around on the sensor! I am still not sure what it was exactly, but I think it was the sensor cleaner, because it would swing down on a diagonal. Anyway, I could not fix it with my man-hands, so it’s on its way back to Sony to get fixed. Humph!
Daily Photo – Flying over the Ice Island
I could stare out of the window of flying machines forever! This is one of 1,000 interesting ice formations we scooted over while flying from location to location in Antarctica. It was so interesting to see how things would crack and shapes like this would form. In just another month or so, it will all melt away, only to be frozen again as Autumn rolls around. Although it's strange to use the word “Autumn” in Antarctica – it just doesn't seem to fit!
