Thanks again all, no worries MStar, good shots! I was tempted to go down to the pier, but that was the other end. Most displays seemed to be centred over the building I was in - I guess that was their line up marker.

Thanks Juz, yeah camera going well. I happened to view your gear list the night before I went, and was dreaming of that 300-800 lens, how ideal it would have been. It's possibly my next big purchase. That new 14mm 2.8 L II looks tempting too. Have no money for purchases though for a few years. It's all gone into my travelling. :lol:

edit: Juz, our gear list is very similar too.. 50 1.4, 85 1.8, 17-40, 24-105, 120-300.. And the future 300-800. 1D, 20D and a 580EX.. Excellent choice! ;)

Have to say, I liked your photo of the beach with the filter.

I noticed you have been to Eagle Heights. I was there last week and they let those storks fly. They were huge! Nearly ate my lens.

I left the air show a little early to explore Beachy Head. I know the area well. I think next year I may stay there for the displays in the hope I may be able to see and take a photo of a Spitfire over the white cliffs. Where your photo is of the 747, I hope to be there, rather than the Pier. You can walk down to the sea and I think see the famous red and white lighthouse and maybe take a photo of a Spitfire next year. I maybe in one of your photos- in full winter gear- my yellow jacket and a red nose!!

Wazza!!!!!!!!

Dammmmmmmn that Mark III! I have seen myself!! Yup, just as my aviator!

YES, yes. I'm at the very end of the Pier with my winter yellow jacket and a black woolly hat on for that extra protection! THAT IS SO FREEKY! LOL! :oops: :oops: :oops::):):):)

I've just laughed so much, I almost fell off my chair!

I've been spotted by POTN!

I do get around a bit. Scotland, Northumberland, Lake District and all over the UK, including Warick and Stratford upon Avon! I was looking at air tickets to New Zealand last week!! I'm saving up for a MacBook Pro at the moment so am not too sure which will win, probably the laptop, as I intend to take that on my travels and edit my photos as I go.

Keep snapping:)

That's pretty cool then!

You must have a flexible job to get around so much.
My new job involves monday-friday and some saturdays also.
Don't think I'll last long, may relocate to Newcastle - still thinking about it - if I don't then I'l go there towards Christmas/Jan for some winter shots, and have the last few weeks left off before going back to NZ on Feb 5th

Nice shots Warren - especially considering the conditions.....

I was at my mothers house - close to the end of the runway at Shoreham airport yesterday afternoon, so was treated to landings/departures/ impromptu fly pasts re refuelling/staging of the Spitfires (Hurricane?) and helicopters associated with the Eastbourne show. Possibly missed others but had to mow the lawn! :confused:

You are following me! Having spent two years at Newcastle, I have to say it was the best time of my life. It should not be too long for you to join them walking down Grey Street in a tea-shirt in the freezing cold and with six inches of snow around your feet on a Friday night. They are a tough bunch up there and I would add, more friendly than us southern folk who tend to keep ourselves to ourselves. Just my impression anyway.

However, they do talk funny. I could not understand them for weeks. I got used to it in the end. I think they have a musical tone which I think is nice.

You may like to try this site:

You can use it to translate English into Geordie!!

This is what you said earlier, as an example:

"That's pretty cool then!

My new job involves monday-friday and some saturdays also.
Don't think I'll last long, may relocate to Newcastle - still thinking about it - if I don't then I'l go there towards Christmas/Jan for some winter shots, and have the last few weeks left off before going back to NZ on Feb 5th."

....and now into Geordie:

"That's bonney cool then!

Yee must hev a flexible job te get around so much.
Me new job involves monday-friday an some saturdays also.
Divvent think I'll last long, may relocate te The Toon - still thinking aboot it - if Ah divvent then I'l gan there towards Christmas/Jan fre some winter shots, an hev the last few weeks left off before gannin back te NZ on Feb 5th ."

I hope you enjoyed that.

My job is Mon-Fri also. I just like to escape and explore from time to time.

I reckon, you should make a visit to the Lake District, as I think you may have missed it on your travels. It may remind you of home? Well, they are mini-mountains compared to your home. I find them more accessible than Scotland, but, so does everybody else and it can be a bit crowded.

Just to wet your appetite :

Sounds like you would have had a good SHELTERED view!
Are you going to Shoreham airshow in 4 weeks?

Maybe you don't really need that 300-800 and giving to a free home? :)

:lol: Thanks for all that info, love the Geordie page!
I saw last night on tv, the info on Skye, Lake District, London, for britains "favourite view"... I was on keyboard, typing down every destination! I think I will work in my current job till mid-late December, then travel up North - I'm hoping for a late-ish winter, as I don't want to get snowed in
