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
