It almost looked like the city was burning but the dark cloud over the waterfront just left a dusting of snow.

Lens Artist Photo Challenge – Action (in the Sky)

….thanks to Pilot Fish for this week’s challenge prompt ‘Action’

I’ve wanted to share more of my photos from the Air Show that I watched from the park at the bottom of my street. It’s nice that I can combine a post that I was going to do with a new challenge.

I found taking photos of soaring jets against a grey sky very tricky. Firstly it was difficult locating the moving planes with my zoom lens and than getting them in the frame was a challenge. Eventually I figured out how to find them and centre them  (enough to crop them later). Most of these shots were the last ones on the camera.fullsizeoutput_712e
