1st April - a fools gamble

Post by lozza » Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:12 am

Well I had no intention of going for this deployment, but finishing work yesterday morning and with glorious weather I choose to take the Ninja out for a blast around the cotswolds, so I called by Fairford just to have a look, thats all it took..... so a quick ride back home swap of transport and collect the camera gear and girlfriend and what a superb day it turned out to be.

These are superb - shot #4 deserves a large frame and central position on the wall. Magnificent.

Lovely stuff, Laurie.

I agree, No. 4 is a stonker!

Absolutely stonking set of images Lozza. Sunset shots are wonderful with the full framed glowing engines shot my fave of the bunch.

Just lovely

Fabulous set of images, especially the first one of the two departing Buffs, emphasising their smoke trails :thumb:
