Inspired by Toby Harriman’s aerial photography over SF, we wanted to try our hand at it too. The flight was almost canceled a few times that day due to extreme haze and thick clouds. Despite the bleak conditions we decided to head out to the airport, and wait it out. Jeff Lewis was keeping me up to date with the clouds as it got closer to take off. Miraculously the haze cleared, and the clouds looked prime for an epic sunset. We took off into the sunset, and scored some incredible images. In addition to a fiery sky, we had the classic San Francisco fog roll in during our time in the air.
On our way back it was dark, raining, and the sky began glowing with lightning bolts.
It was quite a memorable night for my first helicopter ride.
