Irish coast guard rescue exercise

I was coming back from the Aran islands and the coast guard rescue helicopter did an exercise on the back of the ferry, it was pretty cool to watch considering the ferry was still motoring along at i'm guessing around 20knots. Here's a short clip of it

Stills vs Motion

Here's the final result in "Stills vs Motion". Hopefully this will work, with a bit of luck we'll get some waves soon with a small bit of an onion out there forecasted in the next week in the mid atlantic it might be the start of the hurricane season. Now this contraption of mine wieghs in at 10 pounds! And the tripod another 7. I'm not sure if i'll be able to hold it all together on a boat but feck it i'll give it a go otherwise it will be a land based affair. Once again thanks to Graham who put my collar idea into reality, lucky it was carved out of a solid block of aluminium with the unexpected added wieght hahaha
so stay tuned in the next 5 months...
