Don't normally see these guys over the Loch and they certainly didn't stay long...

Nice shot. They look like F/A 18 Super Hornets. I get them over my place (The RAAF ones) but rarely that low and never when I have a camera in hand. I wonder what Nessie made of them?

Thank you, she takes it all in her stride these days.

Nice capture Kerrowdown...the clouds behind create a nice impression of depth in the image.

I'm just glad it was this side of the clouds... not the other.

Nice capture! It was pretty close-up. Too bad the pilot didn't look at you and wave

You know, for all the chatter about better auto-focus, here is an in focus photo of a moving object taken with a manual focus lens (and manual dexterity tracking).

Thank you for the compliment... I cut my teeth in photography long before auto focus had ever been invented, so like so many other "older" photographers, we just got on with it and got the job done.

Nice picture.

Years ago when I was at Loch Ness, I recall some jet fighters zipping quickly and flying low over the loch. Very impressive for me to see. I don't know if this was common, or I just got lucky at the loch.

Thank you, your right... we often do get training runs over the Loch, but not normally these U.S.N. guys.

That said they are most welcome here... combined allied forces need the ability to "hedge-hop" for radar avoidance, for use in most theatres these days.
