I'm sure others have better photos, but here's the lighthouse we saw from the Fire Boat last night.


And a spectacular sunset

The show and shine:








The most memorable part of the fest for me would be when Eric convinced me to test drive his car! It was a handful, and I will never forget that driver's seat and that steering wheel. Nicely done!

Hey guys, I'm looking for a few photos that I forgot to get myself. Does anyone have pictures of each award and the map of where they came from that they can share? If so please upload to the picture server or contact me.

Thanks.

I had a little fun with the FLIR night vision camera in my 535d at TDIfest. :cool:



My wife Lisa was talking with Carl in front of the hotel and I had the 535d pointed at them. The night vision pedestrian detection system automatically highlights any part of the image in yellow that it recognizes as a person standing in front of the car. Animals such as deer are highlighted orange.

The image is strictly a thermal image. The FLIR camera does not respond to visible light at all. It sees infra-red energy radiated from (warm) objects, which we feel as heat. The front steps of the building appear to glow because they soaked up heat during the day and are still warmer than the nighttime ambient temp. Objects at ambient temp appear as a middle gray color. Objects warmer than ambient temp appears to glow. Objects cooler than ambient temp appear darker.

The FLIR pic sort of looks like aliens have landed at TDIfest. :)

I don't remember the name, but it was an articulated oil barge. It appears to have a clipper bow in that photo but it really doesn't. In lake Michigan the color of the barge indicates the cargo. Black = coal or oil.
