Tying up loose ends...

Postby RickIngham on Sun 27 Mar 2016, 10:09 pm

I spent the Easter holidays organising some recent images so thought I'd share a "few"...and for those that don't know, I've now sold my kit so this will be the last time I assault your bandwidth limits!

Firstly, saying goodbye to my all-time favourite aircraft...the Sea King.

Some lovely shots and all with colour ,style and soul :clap: :dizzy: Tinged with a sense of mystery, in why you have sold your kit. Have you had enough? Or does the threat of what lies ahead make you think twice about your interest in the photography game and air-shows? What ever ,good luck...we won't see many like that...cheers... :smile:

Wow surprising and saddening news!

I hope you giving up the hobby is for the right reasons and that you haven't been forced to because of the actions of anyone else.

This is a loss to the aviation photography world, a true talent.

I wish you all the best in the future and if you ever do decide to return to aviation photography you will always be more than welcome to post on UKAR.

Can only echo what others have said. Always enjoyed seeing your photos and you will be missed. Obviously you have your reasons, but it is a shame as you're a very talented photographer.

Thanks for the really nice comments. It's mainly because I'm trying to get some money together for a big purchase and I'm a bit fed up of the hobby at the moment. Toying with the idea of hiring some gear for special events and RIAT so may see some of you around. Thanks again!
