What goes up, must come down! Imminent landing on a recent whale-seeking flight out of Ballina, NSW. Sam, our pilot, and his boss Peter, went out of their way to ensure NautilusBlue got some great shots anyway and sent her up again! What a team! Our great thanks to these guys who make it a pleasure to fly with them. Make a great cuppa and cake too at their Byron Bay Air Charter office! Shot on my pocket Canon.

    cant beat that shot mate,beauty!!!!!fazza

  • Thanks, Fazza, it was made a lot easier by the young pilot (21yo) being dead level when I took it. That made my horizon nice and straight (level). good fun, mate!!! regards, Bill

    Fantastic combination of the inside of the aircraft and the landing area. Wonderful shot.

  • Done with my pocket underwater camera, and it didn’t even get wet! regards, Bill

    giday Bill, I got a couple pocket cameras and they’re not bad bits of kit.
    sometimes lugging a dslr and all the bits around sucks as i already got a bad back.
    need a slave to do the carrying for me.

  • Fellers like Ansel Adams had similar problems, they solved them by using pack horses to carry camera, tripod, tent (darkroom), chemicals, water, etc Have you considered using some other means to carry your kit? Regards, Bill
