This one doesn't really need any comment, does it?
I took this recently over the beach where I was taking the panoramic photos.
I heard the engine and looked up and there this guy was, flying north above the beach, about 200ft/61m above the surf.
It's one of those rare times I wished I could be doing what that guy was doing.
I had the camera on a tripod, shooting the panorama at 1/80 of a second. When I looked up and saw him, I snatched the camera off the tripod (hooray for quick release gizmos) and took three shots.
The slow shutter speed was fine on the tripod, but the pilot's a tad blurry in these photos.
