RAF Cosford June 1st 2008

Hi, My name is Mark Jones and not only am I new to Digital Photography but to photography full stop! I’m married with a 19 year old daughter and live near the sea in Lancashire. I drive trains for a living as does Jason Connolly, another contributer on here, and it is his enthusiasm that has infected me.

Well, I finally bought myself a DSLR, a Nikon D40, and set out last Sunday with the lads from work to Cosford. Thankfully, Jason was with us. He’s a great bloke and very helpful and patient with a novice photographer like myself.
The weather was overcast and once the Red Arrows had dumped their red,white and blue smoke, the air around us was what I assume it to be like on Mars!

Aviation is a lifelong interest of mine and learning the art of taking good and interesting photos of aircraft is a bonus. Though obviously I intend to photograph everything :)
