Picture of the Week: AVweb's Flying Photography Showcase
Concentration? ... Yep!
Low level spraying of a small Athenree Bay avocado orchard. Ground spraying is limited with the trees, so the use of the helicopter is vastly superior. And the show is better. Bay of Plenty, NZ. Nikon D300 70-200. Converted in CS5 camera raw, then cropped.

Canon Power Shot. Late morning, November 2010. Shot by Bea Kuhlke (right seat).

A retired Boeing 747 tops the Evergreen Waterpark (opening in 2011) located next to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, OR. When I spotted this reflection, I waited for dusk. Nikon D40, 55-200mm Nikon VR lens. Image cropped and brightness adjusted slightly.
