My brother owns an R22 Helicopter, a 4 seater which can prove quite handy for getting a unique vantage point for activities below. Every so often he invites me up to take pictures of yachting and boating events that are happening off the coast of San Diego. A few months back he invited me to shoot a race that several of his friends were participating in. The day was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky and the ocean was a deep and rich blue. It made for a spectacular day of shooting. He even took the doors off the helicopter to reduce the glare on the photos. Have a look.
