Melbourne Internation Air Show
Lens: Sigma 70-300 DL f4-5.6 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Avalon ISO: 400 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 03-07-2013, 04:13 AM

Can't believe nobody else went to the air show I haven't had a chance to PP all yet, I got some sort of a bug which has laid me flat for a few days any way, here's a few of my shots, ....my old Sigma lens has developed a AF fault so had to shoot manual so a lot of missed shots, probably 50% but I compensated by taking heaps of shots. when I get through them all I'll post over in the Aviation Group.









cheers & thanks for looking

thanks EM, yeah great to get into a bit of Photography again, been so busy with other things - It was a good day for sure, a bit too long to be out in that heat all day though, I must be getting old
cheers

It's on the to do list. Snuck up on me this year. Went to see the vintage stuff at Jamestown last spring and posted a few shots on the aviation group. But that fast jet stuff is just awesome.

Nice shots. They always look good going up, but when they're heading down with smoke pouring from the tail....not so good.

Regards

thank you Bob, the day was good but after 5hrs of it I was wishing it was a bit cooler, also we had the moon in the background til about 2 pm, I was trying hard to get a plane & the moon in the frame, I got one shot only but .... er, not a very good shot of a plane
cheers

thank you RobG, sorry you missed it, an awesome display as I said above I've been laid up for a few days and I'm behind in everything thing so I'm struggling to get any PP done but soon as I can I'll post over at the Aviation group.
cheers

I'll look forward to seeing them! Maybe next year - in the meantime I'm going to see if I can go to one or two flying days at Temora.
