Thought I would try one more of my lost Pasha images. I was always told to svae the best for last and here it is. I returned to the main part of the beach when a helicopter arrived on the scene and started to circle the ship. I waited and waited to catch the ship, a huge wave crashing and the helicopter in one. I almost gave up when oportuninty struck.
When my hard drive crashed last year and I lost 100’s of images and I thought this was among them. (I have learnt the lesson of backing up). I was happy to rediscover the image and I hope you like it as well.
This image was taken with a Nikon D70.

    An excellent shot – a great capture.
    Maybe try cropping a bit off the top and the left as well? Just a thought.

  • Thanks Mate.
    I will try that crop, it sounds like it should make the image look even more dramatic. Will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the suggestion and input, it is GREATLY appreciated.
