The sound of helicopters overhead. We had local CBS and FOX affiliates flying the helicopters less than a quarter mile away. I could hear a third, but couldn’t find it behind the tree line.
A house blew up after Hurricane Irene flooded the residents out in the days before. Sounds like it was a gas line issue, and everyone around there had already evacuated the area, so no people were injured.
I slept through the explosion, but enjoyed the soft whirring of the helicopters accompanying my morning ablutions.
Yes, if I had the time to mount the lens to a tripod, I’d have slowed the shutter speed down to blur the blades and put the copter into motion. Shooting handheld, though, I took what I could get, zoomed all the way in, and cropped heavily. The sky really was this blue and clear, though.
