Lossie larking about in the dark

Post by Wallace » Thu Dec 06, 2018 9:24 am

I managed to find the opportunity to take a wee drive up to Lossie for some photo therapy. Most of the pictures have gone onto my photo backlog, which is running at nearly two months behind but I managed to process these ones mainly because I was curious as to how they would turn out.

This shot of a departing Typhoon...

... leads onto another, which was shot over seventeen seconds, 52 photos at 3 frames per second, selecting every other one for the composite.

Finally one of the reason why I made the three hour drive

The Swiss Hornet's departure with the burner lit up to the point it cut out continuing the climb on impulse drive.

I wish that I had thought to plan for a performance take-off for the chronophotograph but that's for another day.

Very nice Wallace, what exposure length did you use for the last shot?
Cheers.
