Beating the Commute

For the last couple of weeks I’ve seen helicopters transporting equipment and parts for work on the high voltage power lines that are about a mile from here. I get a good view from the haystack, but even with my 300 mm lens I have to do a lot of cropping to bring in the image and then it’s not sharp.DSC_9858 Today it wasn’t just equipment.DSC_9864 They were transporting people from one tower to the next.DSC_9866 DSC_9867 DSC_9870 DSC_9876 There were two helicopters going back and forth. The yellow one has equipment in this photo.DSC_9900 This was fascinating to watch.DSC_9903 Here is a very grainy close-up.DSC_9941 That looks like a giant picnic¬†basket.
