Left Galt Airport in Greenwood Illinois yesterday- first stop Minocqua, for final preparations.  Here are some pics and videos.

Here below are a couple of images from 2,000 feet over the Fence Lake near Minocqua.  Nikon D3X 24.5 megapixel with AF VR-NIKKOR 80-400mm 1:4.5-5.6D zoom lense with polarized filter.  The underwater imaging is spectacular, especially considering that the water depicted in these shots - the actual water top surface condition has a very slight wave chop.  This technique should be good for the arctic water overflights, especially if the water is glassy between ice floes.  Need to catch it at all at the right time.
