14TH & 16TH MAY: No Sign Of The French

Post by Lloyd H »

Well thats every year since 2009 I've managed to either miss the French or not be able to get out on the right day, hey ho!

Spent the 14th on the Pulpit in the morning and switched to Cad West in the afternoon and the 16th was spent on the top of Cad East. Thanks to all for the company and laughs, of which there were many!

One of the best low level sets I've seen in quite a while. My personal favorite is number 21, good job :clap:

Nice photos... Not sure I'd want to be the guy perched on the ramp of the Merlin whilst it's being thrown around there!

Incredible set
Some of the close in shots are stonking!

Lovely set Lloyd, judging by yours & Ash's shots the D7100 looks an impressive body?

No French, but "pas mal"....

Seriously tho, possibly the best Loop selection I've seen on here. Some different angles and framings, as well as brilliantly crisp shooting.
