A couple of shots from past years, here and abroad.
Another two from Clacton, so often with propellers the challenge is to get the shutter speed right to stop them just enough to show the right blurring
Photographers are always pleased to capture historic moments and the only two surviving Lancasters in formation is one. Plus the iconic Vulcan. Both at Clacton this afternoon
Two points here, one, your back garden can be a great set for photographic opportunities, two, macro lenses are great fun.
Taken quite a while ago when I used to lug a 500mm lens around and through customs!!, all the haze etc around the bird is straight out of the camera, which I remember being very pleased about
There was some great morning light for this shot and a nice contrast with the Lighthouse and the big Norfolk sky
A couple more of the Red Arrows during their display routine. I’ve used some HDR effect here to enhance.
Taken as the team taxi out, slight haze as a result of the jet pipe gases.
I was given the opportunity to attend a private display by the Red Arrows at their base in Lincolnshire. I photographed the whole routine including the crew in and recovery using two bodies so that I had could easily swap between lenses, my trusty 400mm DO and a 28 – 300mm zoom.
Taken with a long lens and a converter across the top of a meadow, with the sun behind me. Careful cropping and a bit of processing then some effects on the overall picture’s feel and look (no shame)
