Everyday we hear the comings and goings of our local Coast Guard. They travel from their station in North Bend down to Brookings and then back. I assume they travel along the coast looking for any kind of potential trouble......but we don't live right on the coast line, so why they take a short cut over us, I don't know. Not that I mind.......I like things that fly over us. Ravens, buzzards are beautiful and graceful in flight. Geese just thrill me to no end; the dipping flight of juncos, and our local heros of the air, the Coast Guard. In this shot, it was actually a series of shots that I took as it flew over, it shows enough movement of the blades to show motion. And I like the blue sky showing through the clouds. At the 4th of July parade, when they show up and fly low, waving to everyone, I think it's one of the highlights of the parade. So, send them a big wave when you see them next time!! One year they flew practically at ground level right along IN the parade. Wow!! That was one of the best!

  1. That's a nice shot. It's so hard to get a helicopter and it be decent. You did well. I'm already following so I'm loving the photos.
