What we don’t see in this kind of picture is the inevitable shifting and gusting winds, especially in a location like this. As my fellow posters have said, this is a VERY SKILLED rotorhead!

That pilot has the hands and feet of a brain surgeon, to handle that so delicately.

He deserves at least a ribeye dinner and an expensive bottle of red wine for that effort.
