My main interests are landscape, wildlife and sports events.
I use a Nikon D40X, a Nikon D60 and a Nikon D3100.
The lenses are either Nikkor or Sigma or a Tamron 60mm Macro. I also have a small collection of vintage cameras.
I hope you enjoy my photography and keep coming back for more, as I am constantly working to increase my portfolio.

    Going Up! What a shot Bangers! Bewdy! – course – could be coming down ~:0) VivaChas!

  • Going down !! An amazing sight as she lands, the pilot keeps the aircraft with the nose in the air for as long as possible to use the huge delta wing to slow down. Thanks very much Chas.

    Touchdown! And you were perfectly positioned for it, too, as this beautiful delta-wing bomber kissed the tarmac. Have never had the chance to photograph a Vulcan, but I was given the privilege of sitting in the cockpit of one of the world’s most iconic fighters!

  • Thanks very much David. This is an amazing aircraft to see fly and great to take pictures of.

    Super shot. Do they still use the tail chute on landing nowadays? Cheers Neil

  • Thanks very much Neil, for this landing the pilot kept the aircraft on it’s back wheels for as long as possible, using the huge delta wing to slow down. This is the first time I have seen it land so I don’t really know when they use the the chute, shorter runways I guess.
