I was out shooting trains by the water yesterday when I noticed a tanker coming up the straight. Not a big deal until I noticed a CG Dolphin hovering overhead, than saw two armed Zodiacs zipping about. I have seen this ship plenty of times and it has never had this kind of attention. Made for an interesting show. Forgive these, they were shot with my Sigma 150-500 handheld. Trying to get a slow enough shutter speed to get helo prop blur with that cannon of a lens was a bit challenging! Forgive any sensor dust I missed. I was stopped down to F22, which I almost never do.
Tanker with Zodiac speeing ahead
Notice the M-60 sticking out the side...not a usual sight over the bay
Another manned machine gun. I shold have got a sharper shot. I forgot to switch back to manual.
Bringing up the rear was the San Francisco based patrol boat Tern
Was a nice afternoon to be on the water!
