It was the end of a three week road trip through the Canadian Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. I had to say goodby heavy hearted to these breathtaking landscapes and amazing wildlife. So I drove to Vancouver airport to fly back home to Munich. But luckily my journey was not yet over, because I had a stopover in New York city for an other five days (lucky me, right?).

A few month ago I saw pictures of New York shot from a helicopter. After some research I discovered that these photos were taken on an open door flight. “Hell yeah that sounds great! Can you imagine, sitting on the skid of a helicopter and shooting photos?” So the decision was made and I book a 30 minute flight.

It was my second day in New York and the flight was planed for 6pm, so I had plenty of time to decide what lens I want to use. My camera kit consist of the Fuji X-Pro2, the XF 14mm/f2.8, the XF 23mm/f1.4 and the XF 56mm/f1.2. That’s all I normally need for my landscapes and cityscapes. Knowing that there was no way I could change lenses during flight, I decided to use my 14mm lens. It is fast and wide, everything I needed for my first flight.

But there was one problem: It was so foggy in New York this day, I could not even see the top of the skyscrapers.
