I popped over to the Evergreen Air and Space Museum yesterday to test out the E-PL5 that I recently picked up. I just grabbed a few shots from the outside of the facility. I've toured it before and it is amazing. To top it off is a world class water park, featuring a 747 on the roof with four different water slides which begin from within the belly of the plane. It is spectacular and so well done. I recommend a visit when in the wine country southwest of Portland, OR. All images, except the last one, made with E-PL5 and either the 12-35/2.8 or the 75/1.8. The building under this 747 houses an awesome water park. The air and space museum is housed in two huge, adjacent buildings. Vineyards surround the water park... this is Pinot Noir country. The building below houses Howard Hugh's Spruce Goose, the EIGHT props (four on each wing) and massive tail, of which, you can make out through the windows. This building also houses quite a few "normal" sized planes, but was built to house the Spruce Goose, which takes up the vast majority of the total width and depth of the building! Comparing the size of the building, which is sized for the Spruce Goose, to the fighter jets seen in front of the building gives you a sense for how immense the Spruce Goose is! This fighter is little more than a seat strapped on top of a massive jet engine... like riding a rocket. Very challenging scene for the camera... extremely bright backlighting, direct sun flare, while viewing into a deeply shadowed, dark, jet exhaust. But I was able to pull out some surprising detail from the depths of the exhaust... What an amazing design... I don't know what model plane this is, but I think it may be from the fifties. This 1953 Convair F-102A Delta Dagger really grabbed my attention... Then there was this sky-piercer... I haven't even scratched the surface of the magnificent specimens on display here... inside there are air and space craft to fascinate and amaze. And lastly, a view of two of the water tubes coming from the belly of the 747... Back at the RV resort adjacent to the Museum... walking the dog and looking across a field toward the Evergreen Museum complex, which also includes an iMax theater for exciting, hi-def 3D movies. This place is COOL! If you ever make it this way and you enjoy great air and space museums, water parks, and iMax theaters.... this is a "must-visit" place... with a first-class RV resort right next door!
