Waiting for the ravens on the updrafts - they never did come back and I missed them entirely. So I am living up to the UWOL cliche of "shooting rocks". And I nearly lost my Aussie hat in the 40mph winds, hence the sunburn to my fine skull.

Still, it was a fantastic view of the Irish countryside. And the photo captures my best side...

And what did I learn from today? Yes, a Sachtler DV6-SB is a mighty fine tripod, but at 13 lbs it is not the ideal companion for climbing a mountain!

Iím glad to see most of us seem to be struggling through. I solved my problems by switching to another camera. Like Per Johann, I shot this one on a HDSLR. Itís been a little scary since this is the first thing Iíve shot with this camera. Iím now waging my usual battle against the evil compression software. Looks like itís going to win againÖ

Mike- Please accept some advice from sunny Texas, my friend. Aloe vera juice or cream is the best for sunburn. It heals faster and takes the pain out. I hope you can find some. Glad you saved the hat. Hang in there.

Mike - thanks for the advice! We don't "do" sun well here. I escaped lightly, thanks to some Cactus-extract after-sun spray. Probably inspired by Texans!

I have written the first draft of my script and am going to record my voiceover then start laying down my clips... and try not to panic being late.

And I forgot to add another tale of woe. It was a very windy day and I didn't have my mic blimp with me, so I was struggling with audio.

Just as I got one of the few wind-free minutes of the day and there was some nice bird song and background noise, a party fire engine came up the road, blasting the horn and with kids screaming out the windows.

In the middle of nowhere.

I may just have sworn, but I suppose there was a funny side to it...

Got mine completed last night.

I uploaded to the site this morning using the old password. I assume that is okay.

Good Afternoon,

We were up north for a shoot sense friday. Raining sheats of water all yesterday afternoon into the night. We decided to drive home and got home early this morning. I was so physically tired from shooting all afternoon and evening when I got home and was trying to get to sleep the ceiling was spinning and when I got up I was spun off balance as if I was drunk, no I was not drinking!!!! I have never been so physically effected by being tired like that in my life, Weird!!

Today the winds are at 50+

I went to my UWOL folder to find the old user id and password and my entire folder was empty, go figure that one???

Chris, perhaps you (or anyone else) could email me the old one.

hey y'all - I sent the upload info around yesterday - but was having trouble with my email - Kevin says he didn't get it - but it did CC to my UWOL account and nothing ever bounced back - so I'm guessing it didn't go to the rest of you, either? I'm going to send it around again, but won't be able to get to it until later this afternoon.

if we need to, for technical difficulties, I can add in a one day extension for uploading.

Meryem, I did not receive the upload email either.
Maybe a day extension for uploading would be a good idea?

Good Morning,

Mine is downloading with the prior information, thanks Chris.

I will post a high res version link for vimeo tonight sometime.



Dale

LATER: It took less than 15 minutes to download, Makes me a little suspecious.

Look forward to see the list of successful downloads!

Dale:

You are welcome....

But wow, in this high speed world, I get suspicious if it takes more than a minute to upload.

Is there an upload list somewhere yet so we can confirm we made it ?

Finished! And uploaded, with only a few hours to spare. That's about as last minute as I like to be.

Not bad, considering that just three days ago I thought I'd be swimming with the sharks. Hurrah!
