Sky Watch - Watcher in the sky

About a month ago we were in the yard doing the fall decorations on the porch when we heard the distinctive sound of the state police helicopter. It is not unusual to hear that sound, as we are not far from the Frederick airport where Trooper 3 is based. But it is unusual to hear it circling this low over the neighborhood. Apparently they were looking for someone as they flew a pattern back and forth. But they must not have found anything newsworthy, as no mention was found in the local paper.

Helicopters flying close can be a bit unnerving as they are so loud. Still, it makes for a great sky shot!

Great capture and lovely skies, Lew! For whatever reason, I've always been fascinated by helicopters in spite of the fact they can be loud! Hope you have a great weekend!

Frederick must be a low crime place. Here, the helicopter hovers a lot. LOL

Great captures Lew! Our house is under the hospital airlift helicopter route, and I still haven't been able to take a decent picture of them.
