This wonderful Spitfire donning the D Day Markings Registration; NFX was captured whilst paying an visit to Rochester Airport with one of my Support Workers. We had been there no longer than fifteen minutes, sitting down and enjoying a cup of tea, when one of the staff noticed my camera on the table. He in turn looked at may and said; "There will be a Spitfire doing a flypast in about five minutes if you want a photograph?" I have never ever been in a position to capture a flying aircraft before, so I rushed as quick as I could into the ground opposite the main hanger and waited with bated breath. I soon heard the familiar chugging of the Spitfires thumping engine, and managed to capture a couple of rather unforgettable images.
The sky in the original image was rather featureless, so with a quick bit of CS6 'Jiggery Pokery' I managed to change the sky. "I hope that you approve?"
"Although this is not a Silly Sunday photograph, photograph number two is?". As you will see the Spitfire came frighteningly close in my view finder, which caused me to fall flat on my 'ask to questions', and in turn my camera went flying. Luckily only superficial damage was caused, however I am now beggining to sport a rather large bruise.
Thank you all so very much for taking the time out to look at commenting on yesterdays upload 'Pointless'.
I hope that you have a great day, I on the other hand will start processing my images from yesterdays rather wet, windy and hailstone filled day out at Leeds castle.
