Sidmouth Regatta- Red Arrows

Postby Seamus on Thu 31 Aug 2017, 12:33 pm

Afternoon all,

Took a pleasant trip down to the coast last Friday with a couple of my non-aviation minded friends to watch the Reds open the Sidmouth Regatta, which presented a nice chance to catch them in some stunning evening light that we don't tend to get them perfomring in at the bigger shows. They seemed to go down very well with my friends, who absolutely loved them, and the general public alike; great to see such enthusiasm for them that is often missing within the enthusiast community...

Great shots & even better than that, really 'Red' Arrows & not backlit 'black' silhouettes like the entire display at Bournemouth on Saturday! Only your number 7 shot comes close to what we had. There is no way one can compensate for Saturday's full midday sun straight down your lens! The normal saviour is that they appear as the last display, but this years Saturday it was first or nothing due to commitments elsewhere! In reality, even being last probably wouldn't have helped as the afternoon show was all-done by 15:45? :shock:
Well done to you in capturing these in excellent late light. :clap:

It's difficult to get excited about Reds shots thanks to Twitter but these sir, are sublime.

Lovely set of the Reds! We had an evening display at Bournemouth. Blue skies and evening light really makes them look stunning!! :smile:
