A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Tuesday, 29 July 2008


The rescue chopper patrols the beaches as well as being called on for marine rescue and other emergency evacuation work.

I can never decide which shutter speed to use when photographing helicopters. I think the blade is too "still" in this shot, but never mind, at least we can see the red navigation light.

A visiting friend of mine wouldn't go into the water once, after I told him the red (navigation) light was a warning that there were sharks out there! (oops!)

Oh Peter, you are mean. But, there are sharks out there!

You're right about the shutter speed. Without a bit more motion blur, it almost looks as though the chopper is falling -- unless, of course, that's the effect you were after!

Great stuff, though. I'm moving to Noosa for a year in January, so I'm really enjoying your blog.
