Hi Everyone! Long time, no speak!!! Wink

Just spent the weekend down with my family who have emigrated to Wiltshire, for my Dad's 88th birthday party.

He has always been an organiser, so on the Saturday evening he had "persuaded" 14 malleable souls into taking off with him for a balloon flight - - all sponsored of course, the local hospice being the beneficiary.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, after a trek around the countryside and change of venue due to wind direction, the flight was postponed. Sad

However, on the plus side, we found ourselves at Kemble Airfield and I managed to grab one or two shots of this helicopter taking off and catching the evening sun.

Thanks for looking, I do hope you like it, LARGE will give you the chance to read who it belongs to Smile

Promise to spend a few hours catching up with everyone, please forgive me if I click & run Smile

Cheers!

maybe a touch slower shutter speed next time just to give a bit more movement in those blades, but I do like the sharpness and the light hitting the side
