Re: OW Season Premiere 2022 - we're back....

All, I also bought tickets prior to their first price hike at the end of Feb and planned to attend whatever was thrown at us. As John states it was pretty busy but short of the '2018 rammed' levels we experienced back then. To be honest it felt just like a standard typical season premiere show of ol...

OW Season Premiere 2022 - we're back....

It's good to be back up and running at last. Lighting can be politely described as 'challenging' for photographers but here are are some of my efforts: 1. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52045604519_70b9429939_h.jpg IMG_5555 by Dr Cake , on Flickr 2. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/520454038...

Meiringen during Axalp 21 (repost)

Sadly I was too quick off the mark with this post previously to miss the great November 21 forum loss. So, for the record, I'm reposting some of the photos here - mods please move to another more appropriate forum if necessary. To recap it was a very late decision to go. To summarise it was a solo t...

Re: Shuttleworth Drive-in Airshow (Vintage) - yet more

Great set Rich 👍 Many thanks! :smiley: Some fab images in this set. The park and sit in/beside your car doesn't appear to have reduced the opportunity to bring home some nice pics and memories. I presume that you booked/arrived early to get the best position. George, many thanks. From memory we arr...

Re: Shuttleworth 3rd Drive-in Airshow Sept 6

John, yes, an interesting day and great to get some nice light at times. Unfortunately we'd gone before those nice Spitfire and Hurricane shots.
Garth - thanks for your kind comments.

Shuttleworth Drive-in Airshow (Vintage) - yet more

I can't really add that much to what has already been said about this show. Needless to say we really enjoyed it but left relatively early to avoid getting home very late. I'm hoping I can get to one or more of the remaining three - will report in if I do. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/5037319...

Great to see Tuesday's shots Andy. Too much quality to choose a favourite! Won't forget all the mud going back down.

Fingers crossed for this year...…. :smile:

Axalp 19 Week

Another highly worthwhile Axalp trip. Monday An overnight snow dump created a magical winter wonderland. As a consequence, it turned out to be a memorable day for photographers. I'm reliably informed that it was as long ago as 2003 since the last snow. Without in anyway trying to compete with Andy's...

Re: Let it snow - Axalp 2019

Andy, it's as good as I thought it would be. So many stunners it's impossible to select a winner. That said, 17 would make a good christmas card! It was definitely one of the best days ever and your photos really prove it - well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

Will post when I get around to it...… Cheers.

2019 Family Holiday

This year we went to Sorrento. There was no danger of my wife and daughters breaking off from sunbathing to visit Herculaneum/Pompeii, so I went alone. I'd certainly recommend going - gruesome but fascinating at the same time. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48775075453_e4b7effb65_h.jpg IMG_6405...
