JASDF Hyakuri Airshow

JASDF Hyakuri Airshow

Postby Vixen1 on Wed 09 Jan 2019, 3:43 pm

I was lucky enough to be able to go out to Japan and include the show for both days. Saturday, which was a much better day, was spent outside and inside on Sunday which was dull and overcast for much of the day. I don't normally post pictures of this size as I use a smaller format for my website. I hope you like them:-

A knockout set! Excellent exposure, colours and composition. I would have liked to be there, too.
Cheers,

Not surprising Nick, good to meet you too. Pity I lost a lot of shots due to my 70-300mm lens focusing properly on the right but not on the left. It's gone back to Nikon again! They will probably say I have worn it out as it is now over 10 years old but has always been a star performer.

Thanks to you other guys for looking and for your comments.
