Preparation, originally uploaded by mwreeve.

Lit with one alienbees strobe in front with fog around. Set to tungsten white balance for the blue.

The fog machine was on the ground camera left behind him as he was facing the strobe. I pointed it so it sprayed diagonally towards the back. It was a short spray so it had time to disappate from his feet and curl up and around to get the smoke curls. - mwreeve

these are part of a still growing slide show of November 6th's miracle in the sky, There were so many I could not post them all at once! The event spans a 2 hour period where these cloud formations changed shape and colors over and over! ONe fascinating bit, the cloud is actually behind the mountain aways, not touching as it looks like. This lenticular cloud got its start early in the morning. Driving up the hill to go cut wood, I saw it begin to form in the same position it held all day!

I spent the morning helping my sweet friend cut firewood, even ran the chainsaw, cutting down small dead trees and sawing them up into blocks... but ooooh, my arm is sore!

I avoided getting shot, and the woods are busier than at any other time of year... there are elk hunting camps every 1/4 to 3/4 miles on many Forest roads! Seemed like tent city, and at night the big canvas tents glow with their lights. - Star Lisa

Mega Hamburger One

Mega Hamburger One, originally uploaded by Marshall Astor.

So it was hamburger night at home, and I stopped by the Numero Uno market to get some tortillas for general kitchen supply, and I picked up some additional items for burger night, and things kind of got out of hand. See the notes for details on the various layers.

There are two keys to making and eating a burger like this successfully:

1) Proper burger meat - a proper burger, IMHO, is made with ground chuck, in a cast iron pan. The beef should be 25% or so fat by weight, lean beef or sirloin are inappropriate. And it should be damn near raw in the center.

2) Proper hand technique - once you pick this unstable tower up, maintinence of it's structural stability has transferred from gravity, adhesion and friction to your grip. Once you establish your kung fu grip on it, squeezing it down to mouth size, you must maintain that grip until there is nothing left to eat but sides and drippings. Use your free hand to maintain a minimal level of dignity and have a good napkin or stack of paper napkins at hand to keep your face, hand and arm respectable. - Marshall Astor
