The Avro Lancaster City of Lincoln is part of the Battle of Britain memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire, England. But You all new that anyway!

This shot was taken as the aircraft took of at Coningsby on Sunday 13 May 2012.

I like this particular shot for the way the sun has caught it, so you can see the airframe structure under the skin.

Camera: Canon 5D MKII, f4.5, 1/1500, ISO 200.
Lens: EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS USM at 250mm focal length.

    Good shot, Mark. And just returned from its second triumphant tour of RAF/RAAF memorial sites in Denmark.

    Great capture Mark.
    Suggest slower shutter speed to get the props blurred.
    Cheers Neil

  • Your right. unfortunately, I’ve got into the habit of controlling my shots through the aperture.
