2013 Seaplane Classic photos

People come from hundreds of miles away just to attend Desert Hawks' annual event at Lake Havasu, on the Arizona side. Some photos I took on Saturday. All comments and additions welcome.

Camera: older Nikon D200 with 80-200, f2.8 Nikkor AF-s lens on Gitzo cf monopod.

We were there Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. We were part of the Southern Arizona Modelers group from Tucson, AZ.

I had been to several of the first "race" reenactments as an Associate Vice President, District 10, AMA. This was our (my son, Dave (moparren) and myself) first time flying off of water. I had the Apprentice on Apprentice floats, a Ultra Polaris (red, white, blue), and the Delta Ray on floats. Dave had his Icon. All planes flew well and we enjoyed the experience. Need to come back next year.

Pretty cool. I was the old guy on the shoreline with a camera on a monopod, Saturday.

I remember seeing a guy walking around with a monopod rig... I am the guy with a beard and long blond hair carrying an older Cannon Rebel with a 300mm zoom lens and a UV filter. At these events I usually have it locked into the "sports" setting for the continuous shot capability.
