Wittmund from the perch

Postby BigClick67 on Sat 27 Feb 2016, 4:52 pm

Hi folks !
Most of the following pics were taken from a hunter’s perch on the southside of Wittmund’s runway 26/08 during Jan/Feb 2016. I don’t know the hunter personally but I would like to say ´thank you! :clap: ´ here to him for the phantastic idea of setting up his perch at this spot! It allows almost unobscured shooting onto Wittmund´s runway with the sun in the back most of the day. A thing unthinkable of only some ten years back when security around the base was way tighter than nowadays.
The other shots were taken from various other spots around the base which also allow for some superb shooting.
Just see yourselves, enjoy!
