Nice pics from your films John and David.
Don't know about you all, but I feel definitively that nr5 round of uwol is the most exciting one. Maybe because there will be many different animals to watch from around the world. Polar bears, roos, merkat, etc...
Also because, for me, the ultimate challenge is to catch wild animals on tape.

On the other hand, as for now, I still twine my thumbs patiently waiting for the rain to go someplace else.

The picture shows the place/little island where I'm heading to catch my last shots for uwol5, if only the rain will stop.

David - This is fantastic. I love the way roos use thier tails as props while sparing. This is going to be fantastic....I'm stoked someone has brought roo's to uwol....if only it could have been me, unfortunately the distance is just a touch excessive!!

Good Morning:

That's it the reasonably good weather this weekend allowed me the opportunity to grab the last of the footage I was hoping for. Now if I can get the story that's running around in my head out the other end of my editor I'll be a happy camper.

Tonight with fingers crossed I'll start the edit process......with any luck I should be offering up five arctic animals.

All the best and good luck to all....man am I ever looking forward to seeing the entries.

well,shoot

My first plan for this challenge fell through. Went out over the weekend but only managed to get some footage of some insects. Not a mammal to be seen. Never heard back about permission to film after-hours at the local preserve, most likely they'll say 'yes' on the 24th...thats how things tend to work out. hahaha.

Plan B is in the works for this weekend as I'll be camping in central California. I haven't been to that area since I was a kid, but back then it was teaming with wildlife. If things haven't been too destroyed, I think I'll be able to find something.

If that doesn't work out - I still have a Plan C to fall back on. Hoping it doesn't come to that though.

Well, for once....

The talent I needed didn't let me down. Had to reschedule a couple of times but yesterday at 5PM we got started.

It's a horse story, Cinco is an older quarter horse that has been used as a "lesson" horse, one people learn to ride on. So when Mike got him he was so used to being ridden only in an indoor arena kind of place, he would "freak out" when someone attempted to ride him out on a trail or in a pasture.

Mike has worked with him and now the two enjoy getting out and Cinco loves to "move out".

The stable owner says Mike is the first person he has ever seen Cinco develop a close relationship with.

Our film (Mike is an old friend from active duty times) will show this and portray one incident that actually happened.

I've got the first edit done but there is some "smoothing" to do and transitions that need work.

Out near Lake Isabella, an area called Cedar Creek up in the mountains.

Today I got some shots for my main plan.
My sister is getting a baby dog in a few weeks, and we went to see it today.
I'll tell you one thing. It's very hard to film a bunch of puppys running all over the place. Had to go all hand held (of course).
Hopefully I can use some of it. If not, it's back to the backup again.


Gordon:
I'll do my very best to send some rain your way. We got way too much of it lately. :)

It's now or never!

As Elvis sing in one of his songs: "It's now or never......!!"

Well I put my cards on the weekend Sept 15. - 16. to go to the mountains and get some footage for the challenge.
Geir Inge emailed me a interesting link for weather forcast, which I have been looking into for some days and it's seems pretty accurate!

Cross my fingers now! If not... ...plan B... ...hmm... let me see....

You’re right Per Johan it is now or never, it’s the best bit of weather we’ve had in the southeast UK since April /May and my car is still in the workshop.

Well I woke up at 7 am this morning and the sun was shining!!!
I couldn't believe my eyes, after weeks with rain, finally the weather's on my side.
I ran to the bath to wash my face and get dressed for some real nice shooting. Back in the kitchen again I looked out through my window :(
The sky was in total change, cloudy and the rain was pouring down - again.
Well, I just have to be patient I guess and maybe it'll change on sunday, at least the weather forecast looks promissing.
To get to my little island and film the rest of my uwol5, the sea must be calm and no rain. You can only disembark this island when the sea is really calm, as there is no dock. Just big waves/sweell from the North Sea, hmmm.
If you all think I'm moaning at this time, Yes I am :)

PS to Per Johan.
If I only had the time to make a trip to our eastern part, I would have considered "Langedrag".
