Hi everyone,

I spent three days in Wales last week with a good friend. We went to the well-known low-flying routes and endured some pretty rough weather while waiting for the Royal Air Force to come out and play :D. Snow, sleet, rain, blizzards, we had it all. But it was all good fun as usual, even managed to have a good snowball fight!

All pictures are taken with a 350D and 70-200 f/4 L IS. 200mm was plenty of length in the location we used, although 300mm or 400mm would give a wider variety of angles.

All the EXIF data should be intact, but basically I shot in Av mode most of time at f/4 and when the light was bad used Tv mode and practiced my panning technique at around 1/160 seconds. I need more practice!
