Thursdays during the flying season are training days for the Sanderson Field RC Flyers, Shelton, Washington. When the normal flying field is not available, training takes place at the club's grass field at Hunter Farms, Union, Washington. The images below were taken on April 30, 2015—a beautiful flying day.
The gallery images below are best viewed on a large monitor. The default image size for this gallery is 1000 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.
