On Saturday, September 20, 2014, the Thurston County Miniature Aircraft Assn and Lake Nahwatzel RC Float Club held the last of three joint float events for 2014. The day turned out to be perfect for flying: the sun was out and the lake was calm. The images below will give you a good idea of what the day was like.
The gallery images below are best viewed on a large monitor. The default image size for this gallery is 1400 pixels—although you can view scaled-down images on smaller monitors, phones, and tablets. I hope you will have no difficulty in downloading and viewing them. Big images take longer to download—but smaller images just do not do justice to the subject. If some images do not load, a browser refresh usually solves the problem.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.
The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used a Canon 100mm macro lens for the images. I set the camera to shoot at a shutter speed of 1/800. 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.
