Default The Red Arrow RAF Display Team...

today i went to Folkestone in Kent, England, to see the 2012 Jubilee Arishow. on hand were my favourite display team the Royal Airforce Red Arrows. the sky was hazy with some awful lighting largely thanks to the sun being directly at my 1 o'clock in the sky and the show going on directly in front of me. made colour capture almost impossible, but what i salvaged i'd like to share with you...

enjoy

regards,
John

ps please excuse my atempt at pp. i tried to get as much colour back as possible in a couple of these shots
