Re: Your favourite image from 2019

I've been waiting years for a snowy Axalp and day 1 in 2019 gave that perfect day with sun, snow and moisture, providing me with probably the best single days photography I've had, here's the shot that got most reaction on flickr & forums https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49169061858_3b0a5aa0e...

A selection of shots from the recent B52 deployment at Fairford, heat haze an issue on the runway shots but this was more than compensated for by some epic light at the end of the day for the last one back who entertained us with a couple of touch & go's before landing. 1. https://live.staticfli...
