I've not been out with my camera much lately and haven't posted on here for a while, but last week i went to Duxford for the 75th anniversary D-Day event, and its was a great day out despite the weather.

Just a few of my efforts below.

Lovely images of vintage aircraft in flight. Can't blame you for not being out with your camera recently what with the very inconsistent weather this past winter/spring. The considerable depth of your talent is evident in your photos. Nicely done.

Many thanks Frank , you are very kind. The lack of camera use is more to do with family commitments and finding the time to get out and about.

Lovely, you were up the right end on the day for the para photos, sadly I was down the other end. Well done.

Very nice. A technical question: what shutter speed do you use to get the plane sharp while still showing propeller rotation?

Thanks for the comments.

I usually try to use 250th down to around 125th , but it's trial an error. The light on this day was quite poor, especially later on in the day. I had quite a number that hit the recycle bin, most of these are around 160th to 200th. It comes down to practice and how good your panning technic is, and yes I'm still practicing!

For the record these were taken using a Canon eos70d and 100-400 mk2 lens.
