I spent 3 hours watching the light change over the city while sitting at the Fineview Overlook. There was a military helicopter flying around downtown, performing some acrobatic maneuvers and circling the downtown area. I started chasing it with my manual focus Signma Canon FD 400mm lens attached to a sony mirrorless camera body with no optical viewfinder. Basically COMPLETE insanity for trying to capture a shot like this.
Somehow I nailed the shutter at the exact second the chopper flew past the U.S. Steel Tower, and it appears as the chopper is hovering right up against the windows — like a scene in a Terminator or Die Hard movie.
