    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.
