Lossiemouth - Exercise "Scotnight" - November 2017

Post by TomG » Fri Dec 01, 2017 3:38 pm

Time for a rare photo post following a visit to Scotland a couple of weeks ago. I managed to make two visits to my old stomping grounds at Lossiemouth to catch the Swiss Hornets in action. 15th November saw three waves during the day although the conditions weren't the best whilst on the 16th I was able to catch the first wave in superb light before having to head off.

So, here's a few from both days with some based Typhoons thrown in for good measure.

Lovely selection of shots, in particular the images of the Hornets 3/4 fronts are excellent!
