What do you do when a photographing buddy calls you at 4:30 PM, omn a Friday and asked if your interesting in trying a photo shoot from a helicoper. In my case you find your wallet [best $600.00 buckjs I ever spent] and drive quickly to meet him at a local airport. [his son was the pilot] Well for the next 4.5 hours we spend time in one of the most beautiful locations in my area and it was only a 12 minute trip. We hit three locations, including one that turned a little crazy with fog rolling in. What a night. Here are a few examples of images, out of about 350 I took, from the trip. JIM

By golly, these are truly spectacular, old buddy. Great job, as always.

Thanks Jer. Will post some more later on. JIM

Good locations, great images, also very handy access tool to have
I could use a cool 1,000,000 to buy my own but this will do for now. Cheers. JIM
