Motion

 Helicopter's main rotor blades

October 1 is City Daily Photo Theme Day and this month the theme is MOTION.

FYI: You're correct, this post is alive one day early because I accidentally uploaded today's post (Gray Jays) yesterday!

This time of year, one way to see and photograph the colourful trees in Algonquin Provincial Park is to fly over them in a helicopter.

 Helicopter

The helicopter filled my camera screen and - even though the machine was moving slowly-  it was quite low and I had trouble  keeping it totally in my view finder. Here I clipped the propeller!

Tail rotor blades

Like the yellow against all that blue. Stunning.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

Such excellent clear shots of movement! Seems like one passenger has his leg out the helicopter! Whatever it takes to get a good picture. :)

TexWisGirl said...

you were getting a jump start on motion. ;)

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Well shot!

Andrea Priebe said...

Nice job on capturing the motion on both the propeller and the tail rotor. It always amazes me that even though the blades are going fast you can still see through them. I can remember sitting in awe of that while watching a fan even as a child. Great shots ...

perfect for the theme and i love the tail shot at The End of the post... so when do you ride in the helicopter to gt shots for us

Chandra said...

Glad to see the tail rotor. Never paid attention to that before.

On a side note, talking about Algonquin; did you know about Stephen Jenkinson? http://orphanwisdom.com

His movie is very profound.

Peace :)

Andy said...

It's unusual to see a chopper fly so low. You got yourself so good shots.

Ginny said...

Good grief it is low!!! And your pictures are superb! That man needs to get his leg back in the chopper!! A beautiful big yellow bird, and try saying that five times fast.
