Day & Night at Northolt

Post by alanp »

Outrageous fortune found me working in London at the same time as Nightshoot XI, so I though I'd better give it a go. Thanks to Phil, Lee and the team for a great learning experience (in Phil's case, new ways to combine swear words). I'm very fond of Alphajets so the feature prominently in my selection, for which I make no apology. The last shot is just there to show that I tried. Canon 60D with a variety of lenses.

Close up of the Fokker and the near head on of the Police helicopter are superb. Wish I'd shot the latter from the same angle.

Great angle on the 146 - wish I'd tried that. As for the hovering EC145, turned out a lot better then mine!

Nice set Alan,

I really like the second Fokker and the following 146 pictures, very nice :clap:

Cheers,
Jeff.
I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.
