48 Hour Photo Competition- Reconnaissance

Post by Seamus »

Morning all,

A new topic for you all, which I don't think we've had yet- Reconnaissance. Simply any type used for tactical or strategic reconnaissance and/or intelligence gathering, new or old. Three of your best please!

Great stuff one and all, a much greater variety of types there than I had anticipated. Lots of stand out images, but it's hard to look past Norman's Blackbird spitting fire. The ultimate recce type.

Over to you, Norman :)

Jings, criven and help ma bob. Was not expecting that, but much appreciated. Was an exceptional machine and lucky to catch it in its glory.

New comp up soon.
