Title Tip of the Spear
Description Static image taken of Royal Australian Air Force F-111C 'Pig' A3-142 Gate guarding Forest Hill RAAF Base.

Popped out for a look whilst in Wagga Wagga for a short stay and almost left the camera behind. After taking a few general shots I noticed the sun was about to cast a symmetric shadow, so I hung around for a few minutes longer to capture the alignment. I had a feeling the harsh light, new glary concrete and gloss radome would look good in B+W.

One of those rare moments where the worst time of day for shooting made the best time.

The best time of day for light is when the light is right for the image. Well anticipated!
