Lancaster Bomber On Night Raid

John Hooton

Croydon, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

I have converted this image to black and white and darkened it a little in order to create the atmosphere of the period which would have been about 1943. Most of the Lancaster’s raids were carried out at night, and this shot depicts flying under moonlight. This was unwelcomed by the bomber crews as it made them highly visible to enemy night fighters.

Lens: 18-200mm f3.5
Focal Length: 200mm
