Smoke on the water

Post by Bartek »

Hi guys,
Today I have something rare - pair of Mi-2Ch from 49th Air Base in action creating smoke screen over Drawsko shooting range.

Wow! What a unique view of a rather unusual operation (over here anyway). Great shots, as always, thank you for sharing them!

Fantastic shots- and hazing the guitar part stuck in my head makes an appropriate accompaniment to the last few!

Have seen photos before of Mil-2's with these tubes on the side, but never of them in use... superb stuff Bartek. What was the camera ship?

Thanks for all comments:)
Photoship was another Mi-2Ch - really tricky game as speed of such action must be very low which makes photos very hard to make.

Stunning photos, not something I've ever seen before. The last few with the reflections are the business.

Marvellous stuff Bartek. Your shooting is always top class in my humble opinion. Always a pleasure to view.
