Was out hiking on Camelback Mtn in Pheonix, AZ last month and the police helicopter was bringing supplies up to rebuild a landing spot for emergency evacuations.

#1 From the trail below the landing pad at 1/60 ss

#5 A quick tweak of the shutter speed to 1/25 of a second gives a full disc of prop blur:cool:

Great shots. #5 almost looks fake since no one ever seems to get that much rotor blur! ;)

#3 & #4 are my favs, I love how in #3 you got the rockyness, mountains/hills, green grass and high buildings!

Wouldn't see that in the UK :)

Superb shot.
The full disc rotor blur has to be my pick of the bunch.

Nice stuff. I love how in number 5 the guy in the left seat already has the door open - I'm thinking his job is getting to mundane. LOL.
