As I mentioned briefly in my last post, I had the TOTALLY AWESOME opportunity of taking pictures in a helicopter yesterday! The annual Watson Lake Outdoor Bonspiel took place this weekend, and one of the helicopter pilots in town thought it would be neat to get a picture of the action from above. He asked my friend Meaghen if she knew any photographers who’d be interested; she told me about it, and I jumped at the chance. Flying in a helicopter is something I’ve always wanted to do, and combining that with photography – well, you can imagine my excitement.
I took a LOT of photos, but here are a few of my favourites.
I absolutely LOVED every moment! It went by so fast. Steve, the pilot, took my door off so I wouldn’t have to shoot through the plexi-glass. It was pretty cold, my hands especially, but I really didn’t care because I was having so much fun. I would go again in a heartbeat (here’s hoping)!
