Not the kinda you imagined eh.................!!

All these were taken with my 85mm lens ( roll on the 300mm ) and i have cropped them down a little so they are a little clearer however a little grainy

As we are on a main low flight path in the valley called the "Mach Loop" for the RAF training we get a free air show daily, here are just 2 different jets, the awesome Typhoon Euro Fighter - boy is this a noisy bugger and a harrier.

yes there heavily cropped but for real they do fly very very low down this welsh valley.

I will try and get some others in due course, oh and 6.5 fps come in really handy :smile: :smile:

( sorry if in wrong location )

Did you take the pix in RAW?

no i lightened them in cs3 as they were bad pics really, and i couldn't get close enough with the 85 mm lens, so heavily cropped and lightened to make them slightly better to view.......lol

will get some better ones with the 300mm lens, i will climb up the side of the valley and sit and wait then i can be eye level with them,
