By Ted Grussing
… another incredible day on Lake Pleasant … left home around 6:30 and launched about 8:30 … hit the places we knew to be good and then began more exploration. On one little sandspit there were more than 200 Avocets on the shore and a passing boat spooked them into flight. They took off, flew in very tight formation and performed close formation aerobatics for several minutes before coming back in to land at the very same spot they took off from. I got a hundred or so shots of them and this is one of the shots I liked the best … they are now in their winter plumage and I’m hoping that they spend the winter on the lake so that I can continue to get more shots of them in flight.

A wrap on a very long but wonderful day … smile … make and live your day.
So each one to his wish, and as for me,
I sit tonight and wait
In slumb’rous moonlight late,
To feel the freedom of the world in me
Like waves of a shoreless sea.

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
