Re: Ronnie left a wonderful legacy...

Hi!

I'm at work now, having just read the sad, but not unexpected news.

Ronnie was of course an inspiration to me, and I had frequently thought, "If I ever get down to Louisiana again, Ronnie Gaubert is the one person I'd love to meet".

I hope that his family considers maintaining his pbase site (to which I've referred numerous photographers seeking inspiration) as part of sharing his legacy.

Every once in awhile, I get a shot or two that reminds me of Ronnie (not as good, but I have a role model on what I'd like to eventually be able to capture, and I'm thankful for that)....:

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR ,TC-14 EII
1/500s f/3.2 at 280.0mm iso200

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR
1/3200s f/4.5 at 500.0mm iso800

Nikon D3 ,Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR ,TC-14E-II
1/250s f/5.6 at 700.0mm iso800

Nikon D2h ,Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S VR
1/250s f/7.1 at 550.0mm iso200

What a loss.....
