Aerials over Founder’s Park & Florida Bay

February 26, 2011, the venue, in the air over Founder’s Park, Islamorada, Florida—below, the famous Upper Keys Rotary Club Gigantic Nautical Flea Market. The pilot Brett Ekblom; the plane, a little yellow fabric Piper Cub; the gear, Canon EOS 7D, 28-135 IS lens, polarizing filter AND great weather. Founder’s Park is a short flight from Tavernaero grass strip, a few minutes even in the very slow Cub. We flew a few box patterns around the park shooting aerials of the crowds at the Gigantic Nautical Flea Market. As we turned to return to the grass strip Brett spotted a friend of his in his back country flats boat. He was out with his children for a fun day on Florida Bay. We dropped down, came along side and took a few passing shots returning a few minutes later to Tavernaero grass strip.

  1. Surely do miss those Island Days on the Keys. Great pictures that rock my memories of Islamorada. What a great little Cub!
