Welcome to podcast 168 of The Fotobug!  In recent news, Google will be shutting down Panoramio, its website for sharing photos of the world on November 4th. One of Ansel Adam's view cameras will be auctioned off and is expected to bring in $100,000!  BenQ has announced a new high dynamic monitor at PhotoPlus Expo.  Also, the winners of the 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the year and the Landscape Photographer of the year have been announced.  A Swedish court recently ruled that any drone carrying a camera is a surveillance device and must have a license.  A British company is selling a $21,800 DJI Phantom 4 that is gold plated.

Jim just returned from a 4 week trip to the American West before attending the Black Hills Photo shootout and shares some images, timelapse and videos of White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.  White Sands is located near the testing ground for the first atomic bomb test - Trinity.  Highly recommended if you visit New Mexico!

Jim is about to travel to Cuba and so next time, The Fotobug will feature Saguaro National Park in Arizona and an interview with our old friend, Mike Pendergast - Sparky!
