This was the last aerial picture I had to take for the day. The wind was pretty strong and for the first time in a long time me and Arnold (the pilot) 'exchanged' a few 'harsh' words. The more unsteady the helicopter is the longer I battle to take the pictures at the required resolution. Because of armed organised criminal gangs watching us, a 'certain' distance to the 'target' must be kept at all times. The helicopter's door must be opened for the whole duration of the operation and is very cold. Even if there is not much wind, the rotor 'generates' a huge down 'storm'. Furthermore at least my right hand must not have a glove on in order to properly operate the equipment. But, as I've already said, this was the last 'shot' for the day after which I will be off to my prefered hobby. -Paragliding -
