The gallery of images below were captured on Saturday morning, May 13, 2017 at the Sanderson Field Scale Qualifier, Shelton, Washington. The event was held from May 12 to May 14, 2017. To prepare the field for the event, some hard work was done by the Sanderson Field RC Flyers (SFRCF), which included work to improve the runway. CD for the event was Tom Strom Jr., a member of SFRCF.
The event winners were as follows (thanks Tom):
The gallery images are 1000px wide and are, therefore, best viewed on a monitor, although they can also be viewed on smaller, mobile devices.
I hope you enjoy the gallery images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. I used Canon 100mm macro lens for the images. For the images of the planes in the air or on the flight line, 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.
