Pedro helicopter on the beach.
“A good photograph is knowing where to stand”.
I’m not sure if this qualifies a “good photograph” but I like it AND I was standing on the pier in Emerald Isle when I photographed the helicopter as it flew down the coastline over a hazy, rough sea. Catching the seagull in the photo was serendipity. I was standing in the right place at the right time. 🙂
This is one of four Pedro helicopters from MCAS Cherry Point. All four are being mothballed by the end of the month. The orange search and rescue helicopter has been a familiar site on the Crystal Coast and will be missed.
