Friday 10th of February 2012 was the 20th anniversary of the arrival of USAF F15E Strike Eagles at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, there had been some snow and a hard frost during the evening and night before, this added to a golden dawn made for some very special photography conditions......
All shot with Canon EOS 1DsMkIII and 600mm f4IS, some with a 1.4X converter. All shot in Aperture priority with +2/3 to + 1&1/3rd EV compensation, RAW convertion DPP and additional PP (resizing, sharpening etc) in Photoshop.
