Last week we scheduled an hour in Holy City Helicopter's R44, expertly piloted by Dylan, for the purpose of photographing our hydro survey vessel working in the Cooper River. It was a beautiful day with great visibility, even though as a rule I prefer to do aerial photography in the late afternoon. Since the chopper moves a lot quicker than the boat, we had some time to photograph other stuff while we were waiting for them to get to their next location. Communication efforts between us and the boat captain were interesting, and after trying radio, texting and cellphones, we finally resorted to good old hand signals out the (non-existent) chopper doors. Here are some of the images we captured as we buzzed around.
