Powerboat photo???WTF???

I've been in photography for more than a few years, but this one I saw in the latest PB magazine, page 19, of Lucus Oil is one that boggles my mind..

The photog should be awarded the photo of the year...

My questionare:

1) Is it a Nort Photo shop???

2) Is it from another boat??

3) Did the helo pilot wet his pants..???

4) What kind of camera/lens did the photog use..???


Great shot guys, and congrats to the person that took it...

It seems as though over the past few months the pictures have been absolutely stunning! Last months showing the Donzi/Cig accident and this month, all I can say is WOW!
Good Job Powerboat Mag.!

1)---there isn't any wake behind it.

Still a cool pic IMO.

Wow, if that's not photochopped, then it's the first flag looking rainbow I've ever seen.

That truly is one of the most amazing shots I have ever seen in a boating magazine. My hats off to the crew and photographer once again!
