The US Marine Corps has just released this rare image of an MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor operating in Iraq – there are green rotor-tip lights, the Marines now tell me. (US Navy photo)

Hey, thanks for posting my photo! If anyone wants to know more about it just send me an email.
A couple things about this photo (I get lots of questions);
No, there was no photoshop work done on it… what you see is what I shot.
Camera: Sony R1
Exposure: 10 seconds on shutter priority mode
I had only a few minutes to get this shot and had no tripod with me so I propped the camera on the ground and set the shutter delay timer. I took a total of 14 shots before I had to get back on the Osprey for the flight to Fallujah. This was the only “perfect shot” I got out of the 14.
