Beautiful selection of very different images. Really impressed with the editing & creative cropping. This is the first offering from Lakenheath I've seen this year that's well worth another viewing! :clap:

20 is a stunner, is it lens focal length compression that makes the moon look as large as it does in photo 17, always wondered ?

This is a tremendous, varied set - I always end up taking the same shots from the approach.
