    Looking good! Obviously snapped with a very fast lens.

    Lovely shot, Steve. I had planned to be there that morning, but the traffic disruption delayed me ….

  • Many thanks David, a pity you couldn’t make the ceremony.

    Great shot……interesting composition. I live near the base where the roulettes are so I see them a lot, so to see you use the shrine and the planes together like this is a great shot.

  • Thanks Judith, I think I would describe it as a lucky shot. The planes go over you “really” fast when they are that low and you don’t get time to do anything except press the button and hope for the best! :-)

    Incredible photo with an incredible angle. You must have used a mother of a lense.

  • Thanks Innermsyt, alas it wasn’t shot with a mother of a lens, it was “only” a 2.8 ! :-)
