West(land) is Best - Tommy at Yeovil/Yeovilton

Post by Tommy »

Once again with a very helpful head's up from RichP, and enjoying the last of the spare time I have at the moment, I popped to Yeovil yesterday to see the second Norwegian AW101 depart (hopefully it lasts longer than the first example!), and then I stopped by Yeovilton on the way home - it's been an age since I have spent a day at the fence, so it was nice to stretch the legs and make use of some winter light. Shot from Pyle Lane at Yeovilton & Bunford Lane south of the facility at Yeovil.

11. I know this isn't the sharpest, which is a bugger; I was shooting with the big lens with only one hand (the other to hold onto something)

That Norwegian AW101 is a bit nice :cool:

Here's some C&C: shot 11 - use both hands when taking photos, and I certainly don't want to know what else you were holding onto with your 'free' hand.... :joystick:

I might have driven past you on Bunford Lane. The Norwegian 101s look lovely, don't they. Only wish I could take my camera on site.
