Coningsby - Typhoon Central 29/11

Seems like Coningsby is the place of choice at the moment for pics so won't put too many up.

Spent an amazingly sunny day at the 25 end of the runway with Dunk and Ashley. First attempt at spending a decent amount of time up there and very happy with the outcome! Plenty more shots in the flickr set - http://www.flickr.com/photos/zymurgy661 ... 225585626/

(Excuse - Flickr processing seems to have created a nastier than is really present halo on the sunset shots, especially 6. It's not as bad on the 1200px originals, honest!)

Great shots, flickr has a habit of 'sharpening' images :smile:

Superb....sure put mine to shame!
Resolution on the cropped in Typhoon burner shot is quite remarkable.
If a man speaks in the middle of a forest and no woman can hear him, is he still wrong?

Nice shots.

Interested in your Flicker comment noticed a couple of mine recently looked much poorer on the forum than direct to the screen at home.
