The First Joint TCMAA and LNRCFC Float Fly for 2017

On Saturday, June 3, 2017, the Thurston County Miniature Aircraft Assn (TCMAA) and Lake Nahwatzel RC Float Club (LNRCFC) held the first joint float event of the year. The event was held at Lake Isabella, Shelton, Washington. The Shelton club hosted the event. Although it was cloudy, and the breeze did pick up at times, there was lots of flying throughtout the day--and no rain. There were even some sun breaks in the afternoon. The images below will give you a good idea of what captured my eye during the day. The images are presented in the order taken.

This gallery is best viewed on a PC or laptop. The default image size is 1400 pixels—although you can view scaled-down images on small monitors, phones, and tablets.

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.



About the Images

The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used a Canon EF 100mm macro lens for the images and a shutter speed of 1/800 sec. All images received simple processing in Photoshop and were saved as low-resolution JPEG images that were optimized for the Web. See "A New Photographic System for an Old Photographer" for more information about my (now somewhat dated) photographic system.
