Fabulous shots Nigel - you manage to get such a good variety of angles at Lakenheath. #11 is brilliant, but it's #20 that steals the show.

Where is #13 taken from?

A tidy up crop (I'd chopped the wingtips) of the first of a sequence during one pass!

Lovely colour in the afterburners. How did your evening shots come out last night?

Good thanks Dan, I had a bit of a colour balance problem with a few of the later evening ones. #21 & #22 are from yesterday afternoon.

I was underexposing from that field to try and get them silhouetted against the sun. Pretty pleased with' em, I was just hoping for a little more colour in the sky.

We had a nice sunset here today - were you back at the fence this evening?

Monday night was the better night sunset and light wise, however I am very happy with last nights images. I wasn't there today as I was in the studio shooting for a client.
No doubt i'll bump into you there again , I'm glad you got shots you were happy with.
