    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Maybe he did not have 45 MPH winds like we did.

    Having calmer winds definitely helps, but when a lot of those pictures were taken winds were in the forties, if not higher... :-)

    But on a more serious note... I can think of a couple of things that probably made a difference:

    1) Having the right camera and lenses really helps. "Heavy" cameras and lenses are easier to hold steady.
    2) I always try to brace my elbows against my body to steady the camera, and, if there is something physical to rest on/brace against, (especially if windy), I'll use that too. Crouching down, and resting your elbows on your thighs/knees can help too.

    Thanks again to everyone for the comments/complements.
