Hi this a shot of a Hydro-One helecopter stringing wires onto the new hydro towers that go across my farm.

Thanks , to see these guys at work is quite interesting how they can thread the end of a cable that is being pulled by the chopper over the pulleys that are hanging down from the towers. They obviously have carried out the procedure many times before.

What makes this shot for me, besides the clarity of the foreground image, is the replication of the pattern in the lower right.

Cheers,

Thanks Tom I included the additional shot in the lower corner just to show just how close to the towers they actually fly.
Shot with Sony dsc-h1 on full zoom with additional tel lens.
I was quite some distance away from the chopper.
I have two sets of hydro towers going across my farm and it was difficult not to get hydro wires in the shot
Regards Geoff
