Firstly, my apologies for creating an OT thread on the forum, but I thought it was prudent since my post will involve many pictures that may be slow to upload for some forum members, plus I am better able to warn of the pictures in a seperate thread http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

After putting that little issue away I will continue. Today I was able to use my new digital camera in anger for the first time and what better and challenging way! I visited the Kemble Open Day today which for this weekend is commemorating the Battle of Britain which is of course September 15th. Unfortunately I attended the wrong day in the hope of catching the Battle of Briatin Memorial Flight, which is appearing tomorrow http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif But, I was able to get a few shots of vintage aircraft and some younger aircraft from the jet age. Blessed with unusual weather, and yes the sun did make a guest appearance! plus my fathers superb telephoto lens and monopod I was able to put my camera through it's paces. Thankfully I was blessed with a large memory card which was able to accomodate my continuous shooting bursts as the aircraft made their fly-by's!

Anyway, enough of my ramblings here are some of my shots;

Great stuff Goose. I bet you enjoyed it and I envy you.
My time to fire my telephoto in anger is yet to come.
BTW what lens was that?
