On Sunday, June 12, 2016, 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. Although the clouds looked dark and threatening at times, the day, in fact, turned out to be perfect for flying: there was no wind or rain and the lake was calm—and the aircraft reflections on the still water were quite beautiful. In the afternoon, when the sun was shining, it became quite warm. The images below will give you a good idea of what captured my eye during the day.
This gallery is best viewed on a PC or laptop. The default image size is 1000 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.
The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used Canon EF 100mm macro lenses for the images. 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.
