The fun of sharing this image isn't just because it's so spectacular, but because knowing about it is the result of social media. Here's the short backstory:
Meet Jeff Allen, a photographer from Battle Ground, Washington. We met on Facebook when I sent him an IM meant for my buddy Jeff Allen over at Tamron. I was inviting "Tamron" Jeff to dinner the next time he and the Tamron crew were on the road doing a workshop here on the gulf coast of Florida. Well, Jeff Allen responded with, "I think you messaged the wrong Jeff Allen lol... But sure! We'd love to have dinner!"
Nothing beats a great sense of humor, and when Jeff posted this image on Facebook yesterday, I had to share it. As always, I asked for permission along with the specs on the photograph.
This was taken with my DJI Mavic 2 Pro with the Hasselblad 20mp camera.
It has a 1 inch sensor. I was 400 ft from the ground, which is already about 600 ft above sea level.
So technically I took this about 1000 ft above sea level.

And to both Jeffs, the dinner offer still holds, whenever either of you show up!
We've postponed the f64 Lunch Bunch for a few weeks. There's so much going on in everybody's lives right now in terms of help and education. However, we're all still here to help and just an email away.
And if you missed the May 6 lunch with Bobbi Lane and Tony Corbell - it's pretty amazing. The video is just a click away.
