That first shot is pretty dramatic after your brain catches up with your eyes.
At first glance the bottom half of the shot doesn't seem to have any relationship to the top half until the lightbulb comes on!

Nice job especially the first.

Well done. Such a common sight around here. You captured them perfectly.

What is that thing along with the rider in the Sandy neck image? I don't think I've ever seen one before?

Hi,

Thanks.

That is a small gasoline engine with a prop. The operator, sits in this cage,behind which is the engine.

I don't know exactly how he can control everything. But, they are a common enough sight at Sandy Neck. Maybe I'll ask next time I see one getting ready to take off.


By the way, thanks to all who have taken the time to comment. It's much appreciated.

Zig
