Hi, Not posted on here for a while, but do pop my head in now then then. I know some of you guys like photography so here goes : A couple of holiday pics - Last minute decision we ended up at Bournemouth. We went there last year and had a fab time. So we trekked there again. Most the hotels were booked because of the air show, but we managed to find 1 hotel for 1 night, then found another one for another 2 nights. Unfortunately I was due to goto back to work on Saturday, so I had to cut the trip short, but I managed to get some pics of the air show. Enjoy! The beach was absolutly packed : No space to even walk! All the decent spots for taking photos were gone - So we ended up on the other side of the pier on the hill - I figured this was probably as good as it was going to get! So I was standing on this broken wall. :lol: Had my Nikon D80 with me this time with 18-200mm VR lense. Have never used this camera before on holiday so I wasn't sure how the pics will turned up. Had to take a few test shots to check. Sorry if the pics aren't 100%. It was my first time with the SLR at the airshow. There was this miltary type ship in the background - it was stationary. Easy Pic : Next was to try a moving shot on maximum zoom : Seemed ok so far ... little did I know how hard this was going to get! Here are some pics that flew over : Had trouble keeping up with this one - I think its a hornet? It was quick! The helicopter display team (Black Cats) turned up - but they were quite far from were I was standing : Did some acrobatics with some helis. There were some display teams as well. Standing on the plane! Then I spotted this in the amongst the clouds - totally silent : As it got closer - the twin afterburners went on and the noise from that was absolutely incredible! 8) All the kids covered the ears including some adults too.. Any guesses to what it was? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Typhoon Eurofighter!! The maneuvering capabilities of that aircraft was like nothing I have ever seen. Absolutely incredible! 8) The enemy hasn't got a hope in hell! Lol. Spotted a group of incoming planes in the far distance : The Red Arrows were here!!! 8) Did some awesome flying stunts. Here there are changing formation a few times : View attachment 254594 Saw one coming real close to where we were standing : Couldn't resists a close up shot : The grande finale : Had a go at some artisitic shots : The best for last and my personal fave : Had a fantastic holiday! Highly recommend Bournemouth - great beach and great food too. Have to admit - hats off to the Nikon D80 - it is a fantastic camera - even a novice like me can take professional looking shots. Deffo recommend it! Thanks for looking! Be interested in any comments and tips.
