Yesterday as we were coming home from the city, one of our local Heliworx chopper's was in operation.
|Climbing up towards me to |
start another run.
I took this series using Resolution Priority @ 16mp, in 16:9 and 4:3 formats, using the highest quality for both settings. Ev was generally 0.00 with a little negative Ev when looking sun-ward.

To give you an idea of the scale of things I have added three photos showing the surrounds as well as some of the operations going on. The rest can be seen in my online albums Here.
|Looking back towards home from|
the back of my van.
Home is the upper house about 500
metres from where I was standing.

Centre frame is the fertilizer truck
As you can see from the image at right I was a good way off the action, well in excess of half a kilometer.
|Filler Up Boss|
This is where the lens of the big Fuji comes into its own. While I'm sure a good 300mm lens on a DSLR would provide a good image, I'm not wanting to crop these types of images just to get a better view as this tends to remove a lot of the photo that adds context, to what the shot is about and what the photographer was intending to portray.
|Heading home at the end of the day|
Hopefully this then provides the viewer with an image that has context, and a window into the not often viewed world of rolling & hill country farming here in N.Z.
Plus of course the boy in me just thought it was a very cool thing too!!
