Big Sky, Small Plane

Big Sky, Small Plane

Postby Macc on Sat 01 Nov 2008, 2:44 pm

Saw this on Lowfly.net and thought it was better than certain type photos so i thought i'd start it here

Heres the idea/brief; the shot should be of big detailed or colourful skies with a small, distant, or evidence (vapour trails/light trails) of aircraft in the shot, the emphasis is on the sky though!
To start the ball rolling...

Some of the shots so far have aircraft that are far too big and don't fit the brief !!!

There was a dramatic sky when XH558 returned to Waddington on the Thursday before the show, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with this distant shot. :smile:

It's only recently that I realised that I should buy a telephoto for my Olympus DSLR, so this thread at least means that I can show a couple of recent ones, plus 3 of my pre-telephoto shots!!

Apache helicopters depart Albermarle barracks (ex RAF Ouston) on route to Otterburn ranges

The frustration at being in the right place at the right time only for the aircraft to fill a small portion of the resulting image was the final spur (thanks Apache, it was you that made my mind up).
