Default Heliport shot

Here are some I took during my weekend workout on my bicycle. All these were taken with a ef-s 55-250mm. Not bad for a kit lens, and it is less of a workout to carry during my workout.

You've left me salivating Shoturtle!! My favorite is the one with the N1309U registration (the 1st image in the 3rd set)--the jet wash from the engine is very cool!

Sounds like a very busy spot! I'm waiting for the weather to warm up to head out to the airport to photograph airplanes.

Thanks Jelpee,

Actually it was all taken within 15 min. It was a very busy day at the heliport today. I just happen to bring the canon with me. I was out and about to test the new epl-1. But when I saw all the birds overhead. I decided to stop by the heliport, and a bird was coming in about every 5 min when I was there. I did not have the zoom for the epl-1 but I had a zoom on the canon. So I got lucky that I did not take the canon out of my bag.

That shot you like most is one of the ones I like, the light was just right, and I got really vivid colors with it. And allot of details.

lol, we've all done something like that before. i once headed out to the botanical gardens for an early morning macro shoot before a meeting. it had been set to iso 1600 from the night before street shooting. never even bothered to look, still not sure, must have been lacking coffee. so needless to say a good hour to hour n half of macro shots wasted.
