Looking back towards Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) at sunset out of a Robson R44 with the doors removed. It's quite a bit harder than it looks to shoot backwards out of a helicopter going at high speed in the opposite direction. Windy is an understatement. If you try and shoot sunset at both the Kata Tjuta and Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the same flight you really need to move quickly between the two locations. We were flying along at over 200km/hr (125 mph) when I stuck my head out to take this shot looking backwards over the tail rotor. Very hard to hold still, and I had to use very high shutter speeds to freeze the motion. Northern Territory, Australia.
