Our photographers snapped literally thousands of photos from the air and water at the Shootout Poker Run. Here are 51 favorites from photographer Brad Glidewell, who hung out the side of a helicopter for some stunning pics.

(The event is the chance for powerboaters to cover a lot of water, the day before Shootout, by joining in a poker game that spans the entire Lake of the Ozarks. It began at Millstone Marina, at the 8 Mile Marker, on Friday morning, extended all the way up to Big Dick’s, at the 47 Mile Marker, and ended with an awards ceremony at Shady Gator’s, near where the day began.)
