75th anniversary of D-Day - 'Daks over Duxford' my first go at air stuff and it's trickier than it looks! If I am honest for the majority of the shot's I wish I had taken the 200-400 but I had the 70-200 with the 1.4 ext on it so made do - even though most are ridiculous crops I think I got away with it. Few of my favourites:

#4 SERIOUSLY - how close do you want it

Going to stop here as I can keep posting all day - I felt humbled and grateful at the same time!

Thanks for posting those shots, David. I did look at more of the photos on your web site hoping to see this plane:

IMAGE: http://www.lj3.com/1dx2/hff_dc3.jpg
I was happy to see that you did get some photos of it! It belongs to Historic Flight Foundation in Everett, Washington. It's about 45 minutes from my house, and I've been there many times. The owner and one of the pilots is John Sessions. He was almost certainly the pilot when you took your photos. All of us who know John were so happy he was able to go to Duxford. Here's the back story. Last August, John was flying his de Havilland Rapide at an airshow in Canada. Due to a wind gust, he lost control just as he was taking off. The plane crashed. The 5 passengers just had minor injuries, but John's right leg had to be amputated just below the knee. John is an incredibly positive person, and looked at this as just a setback. To make a long story short, John was re-certified as a pilot about a month before he and the Pan-Am DC-3 headed for England. John has a special connection with D-Day. His father was one of the paratroopers who went in the evening before. John used the DC-3 on June 5th to retrace his father's flight into France. Thanks again for the shots. It was really fun to see them.

Regards, Jim

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

What an inspiration, as the old saying goes "they REALLY don't make them like they used to" the name rings a bell from the commentary! I tried to get a couple of shots of everything that flew, not very exciting shots as they were running late they took off / circled around behind us and were gone - all expected a 'group' flypast. STILL an awesome sight / sound though.

Those landscape backgrounds on 3 and 5 are beautiful.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

Thank you kind sir, timing them to avoid the pallets stacked up and the farm equipment was a challenge on it's own, does make a huge difference to just the sky though, will have to remember that if / when I get to do planes again.

One more (previous to #3 above) managed to clone out the 2 ambulances that were in the background.

I went on a birding shoot on a headland on the weekend and knew I would need to wait after the sun had gone down for the tide to recede to be able to get back to my car.

So I took my recently acquired 16-35 with me and captured these three images from well outside my normal comfort zone and processed them from a point equally outside said comfort zone.

All wonderful shots but I am drawn to the first two. You need to step outside your comfort zone more often.
