Spring sunshine, Winter wind at Old Warden

Spring sunshine, Winter wind at Old Warden

Postby Seamus on Mon 02 May 2011, 9:20 am

Morning all,

Kicked off the new season yesterday at a blustery Old Warden, a very enjoyable start to the year despite the wind's best intentions and good to be out and about with the camera once more. Very pleased to see the PO2 on it's début, another vintage Russian aircraft with a great sound. The AN-2 put on a particularly impressive show too, one of only a handful of aircraft that enjoy that sort of wind I suspect!

Here's a selection from the show, more can be found on my Flickr

Very sharp shots! I like the creative b/w shots as well. May I ask what kind of lens was used?
