So there I was, tracking this chopper with my camera when I realised it was going to fly in front of the sun. So I closed my eyes (or risk sun damage) and shot, and this stunning photo was the result.
According to my awesome engineer friend Jan (who designs and builds gyrocopters), this is an Oryx.
This shot was taken moments before the one above. You can see the sun’s halo starting to show on the left of the shot.
