Photo of the Day - August 26th, 2018

Yesterday morning, I headed out to Perth International Airports public viewing platform, getting there shortly after the gates open to the public and spending a few hours hoping for some decent photos of jets taking off and landing. Unfortunately the wind conditions weren't conducive to flights using the strip in front of the viewing area, so most were taking off and landing on the East/West runway (Runway 06/24). As it would turn out, only a single jet would use the main North/South runway where the viewing area is situated, Runway 03/21, and that was only because that particular jet requires a runway a few hundred metres longer than 06/24 in order to take off. As such, the subject for today's Photo of the Day is China Southern Airlines' Airbus A330-300, B-5939, about to take off at Perth International Airport (PER), headed for Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN) in China under flight number CZ320.

Today's Photo of the Day features Western Australia's Matt James exiting the Springmount Raceway burnout pad in UNWANTED, his blown Holden VF Commodore Ute, after finishing his final skid at Northern Nats 2018. Matt ended up taking home second place for the weekend as well as winning the power skid competition on the drag strip. Scoring for Northern Nats is more of an endurance event than most burnout competitions, with entrants having to complete three skids over three days and their score being the total score for all three attempts. Add to that the particular conditions at Springmount Raceway which, at an elevation of approximately 400 metres (or 1300 feet) above sea level, has air a little thinner than at most of Australia's burnout pads, and scoring well at Northern Nats is no mean feat.

Today's Photo of the Day comes from the idyllic Kinney Reservoir. This man made lake sits approximately 8500 feet above sea level, beside one of my favourite driving roads in America, The Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway. This narrow, winding road loaded with tight hairpins takes in some amazing scenery in the Californian high country and is well worth a visit during the 6 months or so a year that it is open. Check out the Ebbetts Pass Scenic Byway website here, and while you're in the area, drop in to Arnold and have a bite to eat at Giant Burger.

The Photo of the Day for today comes from New Zealand. This is the crater of Mount Eden, shot at dawn with the city of Auckland in the background. Mount Eden is one of a number of dormant volcanoes in the Auckland region and in my opinion, one of the best places to watch the sunrise over the city.

The Photo of the Day today is Richard and Mike Collison's 1950 Buick Straight Eight, at the SCTA's Bonneville SpeedWeek 2010. This car was built with a little help from Gary Hart and sponsored by DIYAutoTune.com. The teams SpeedWeek 2010 campaign was cut short by a couple of holes in the block courtesy of the number 2 con rod. As you can see here, this is one beautiful race car, and hopefully still ready to race, although I can't find any mention of it on the salt much after 2010.
