Image of the Week: Two Birds Chase a Cat

With the annual Desert Storm Poker Run coming at the end of the month, we thought this would be a good time to revisit photographer Jay Nichols’ Flickr Gallery from the 2014 event on Lake Havasu in Arizona. Nichols has been covering the run and its related activities since 2012, and he’ll be there again this year to capture the action.

Desert Storm attracts all kinds of go-fast powerboat hardware, including the occasional offshore raceboat such as Team CRC. From his own perch in a helicopter, Nichols captured the 42-foot Marine Technology Inc. catamaran tearing down Lake Havasu trailed closely by two Robinson helicopters.

Photo opps abound during Desert Storm, and Nichols made the best of this one. We can’t wait to see what he brings back this year.
