Hawk, slow panning

By geoffrey baker
A Hawk photographed at the Mach Loop in North Wales UK.
I used a relatively slow shutter speed of 1/320th second @ 400mm to get some motion blur on the background, these planes fly past so fast that it's very difficult to keep them in the viewfinder.
I had to add a little to the bottom of this image below the wing as I only had about half the gap you see here, apart from that it's full frame, exactly what the camera took.The white streaks are bits of snow on the mountainside.
