Re: DEATHly action at Fairford

yes but why does the watermark have to appear in the main subject of the photo? I am a spotter not a photo judge and I come on here to get info and post logs if I have them - the photo section is just an added bonus.

NIKON 300MM F2.8 VR + NIKON 1/7 CONVERTOR

Having stewed on this for a while have decided to part company, only reason is that I only use the 200-400 F4 now and this lens now sits idle. Lens is in A1 working condition, and excellent condition, I'm very anal about looking after my kit, comes with lens cover and Nikon carry case, glass is free...

Re: Weather watch for the week ahead

Going by the current SFC charts, a low pressure centre sits right over Fairford on Friday afternoon. Unless the LP shifts, can expect a mixture of sunshine, showers and a strong cross wind. Of course, it's way to early yet, bring it up to Wednesday and the model runs will be fairly accurate and cou...
