    Well, I hitched a ride with the Bell 412 the other day. Flew over some mountains and landed a couple of places. Picked a "few" of the best picture that came out. Took over 900 pics. in two hours.

    My comments on the pictures are at the bottom of this post.

    Well this was just a mountain. Thought it looked nice and i tried using as slow shutter as i could. But we were flying so it was about 1/50.

    #2:
    This is a picture I took when we landed on a swamp. The skies were low and the light was dark.

    #3:
    Another swamp but this time there was a glitch in the sky. Took advantage of it and I think it came out OK.

    #4:
    Well, might not be the best picture but I tried to capture the "ball" of snow blowing up as the chopper landed.

    #5:
    The original picture was a bit dull, so I tried to give it a sepia look with an old school look.

    #6:
    A nice mountain.

    #7:
    This in the "ball" that out chopper created. The purple light was really nice. If you agreed is really up to you.

    #8:
    Well this was the one picture I got when he blinked with the red light on top. I like the red,white and black combination.

    #9:
    I guess what caught my eye with this one is that the sun kinda "made" the picture.

    #10:
    The combination of the big mountain and the "small" chopper down below.

    Comments and critique is welcome :)

    Thanks a lot guys :) Appreciate it! Yeah it was a good trip. Was a really steady and calm flight but it was excellent for taking pictures. Hard to take pictures while flying tactical :p
