Haven't posted on here for ages, so thought I'd post up some shots of recent trips out! Hope you all enjoy them. The majority were shot with a Nikon D300s and Nikkor 300mm F/4 AF-S. All were shot within the UK.

Thanks for looking!

Wow!!! Those are great shots! It looks like you might have been in a plane for a couple of those shots. Was this at an airshow? I love how you "froze" the jets and had them crystal clear and the background was blurry.

Anything but bored! Love the shots and the subject both. Those are some great shots of very difficult subjects, anyone who has tried knows how tough it is to catch them.

No these were taken from a mountain believe it or not, apart from the last few of the helicopters. It is a place in Wales were the RAF & USAF practice low flying :thumbup:

Splendid! I still get a lump in my throat when seeing the Tornado - have done since I was a kid!
Were these taken at the Mach Loop?

I am DYING to get down there for the day!

I think you may like this guy.

Lovely pics. #13 is really sharp! The F15E looks like it can open a can of whoop-ass on someone.
