Encounter at Sea by babynuke Encounter at Sea by babynuke
A Belgian Air Force Westland Seaking paying a visit to the MV Larkspur, dropping off some people. The highlight of my day, getting a shot like this of a helicopter without being at an airshow!

Got a few more shots of it, dunno if I'll upload or not as it's mostly more of the same. This one might go on a.net, I'm quite chuffed with it. Won't do that now though, but I've really wanted to put this on dA at least.

edit: On airliners.net now - [link]

I must say this shot is simply amazing. The scale and the sense of depth is very intoxicating and is just overall well done. The colors are extremely crisp and bright and only adds detail to the picture.

It really is a lucky shot, I had no idea we were going to get a helicopter visiting us, then all of a sudden saw this Seaking outside the window flying alongside the ship. Grabbed my camera and went outside, and this is the result :)

Guess that goes to show: always have your camera somewhere nearby!

Flashbacks to when you were out at sea, or because of the helicopter?
