Friends flew me into the Bugaboos for a few days of  heli-hiking. While there we took the opportunity to photograph their helicopter, an ec120 as it flew past the rocks and ice. By removing the door from the camera helicopter I was able to get this clear shot. I remember the cold wind from the glaciers chilling the cockpit, and should have worn a toque! I was really gripping my camera tight as I shot this image. With the door off and thousands of feet of open sky below me it was as exhilarating a moment as you could hope for.
