i wanted to beat the crowds
all photos were with an old 400mm screwmount lens on my K10D

one and a half kilometers away

Neat shots John and what a neat opportunity to get some photos. I think I like your take-off shot the best, but if you did not know it was "supposed" to be doing that you would assume that plane was in real trouble.

thanks guys
it was a fun afternoon
( a fair hike around the river though)
i had been told about the take offs so went with the idea of getting at least one photo
a shame i have to wait another 12 months before i can have another go

I like 3 and 4 the best but they are all good.

Some day I will get to one of these.

Great shots... I really like No. 4. You are very talented with an all-manual system...


Gumnut Nov 19, 2007 3:03 AM

sgarthee if you can get to one i would recommended it as a photo opportunity, i did go the day before the race and took photos of qualifying
i didnt want to fight the crowds

i dont feel i can take all the credit for the shots Nick, the antishake in the K10D really helped, and of course you dont get to see all the binned ones

thanks for taking a look :)
