it took 10 months to get there but i

..errr we got the actual helicopter ride.. it was over quite quickly but basically just aimed the camera outwards.. set the AF to single and kept pressing the shutter button.!

I chose the 24-70 mostly at 24mm a middle aperture to keep shutter speed high to overcome vibrations.

The ride was incredibly smooth once in the air... and with the noisecancelling headphones it was amazing to have a normal conversation with the pilot.. (it was nice of the othe couple who we did nt know, to offer me front seat!

one from the ground converted to BW

check my DP gallery on Helicopter Experience for a few I have quickly processed

Thanks for lookng and Thanks for all the suggestions here esp to enjoy the experience rather than miss it!
