Sun N Fun 2024

Couple of shots from the last few days at Sun N Fun. Last day for me tomorrow. Will add more when I get back to the UK. All taken with my smaller lens, I didn't fancy taking my 800mm prime on holiday haha. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53649153302_25d1b46386_6k.jpg Lockheed VC-121A Constellati...

Grumman HU-16B Albatross N98TP (Lee on Solent, EGHF)

Grumman HU-16B Albatross N98TP visiting Lee on Solent airfield for fuel and left just before the last bit of light at 16:20 on Tuesday. I had to shoot at 1/30 with 4000 ISO, to get some kind of decent picture. Lovely to see at my local. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53393921385_5b7866eb0e_k.jp...

Re: Shuttleworth Vintage show - Mostly not the usual suspects

Lovely set of pictures

Love the Staggerwing shot and the Waco UPF-7 and Travel Air 4000 together.

The start of the show was a struggle as the sun was still in the way for me but got better as the day went on.

Re: Shuttleworth (Old Warden) Vintage Air Show 2023

Nice, crisp shots. I am annoyed that I didn't get that shot of the Staggerwing. I don't think the weather was quite perfect. There was a lot of thin white cloud which gave some of the topside shots a very boring white background. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/53166102365_ab5c07ce27_b.jpg Very...

Good to see the Dove, I didn’t know any were still flying. Are those stored Islanders in the background of the Aztec picture?
They are indeed. Can't remember how many now, 7 maybe 8 stored.

Re: Sigma 500mm f.4 Sports lens

Hey.

Never used this lens before, but as I have been using the Sigma 800mm Lens for many years now (which I love) I can imagine The Sigma 500mm would be very good.

All the best,

Rich
