Sunset @ Deptford Down

Postby MerlinJon on Wed 16 Nov 2011, 9:36 pm

Spent a great few hours at Deptford Down on the 15th Nov, and finally after two years of waiting bagged myself a Chinook there.

1. Flying through the setting sun.

3. Nearly dark, so the ISO went up and the shutter speed down.

Thanks to Dave Holman for the company and the driving.

Cheers

Very nice Jon!
Did a Naval Lynx come to the strip for a while?

The Apache is rather nice too although the second 1 seems to be suffering from compresion?
Atleast on my monitor...

Cheers Rich

Hi Rich

Not while I was there although I thought I heard Skua78 announce intentions for Deptford Down but it did not show, yes the last Apache is not right so now removed!

Cheers
