Wings over Elvington

7 May 2022 6:52PM   Views : 363 Unique : 227

Today was a 1940s re-enactment event at Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington. It was a good clear run trhough this morning, arriving at around 10:15 and straight into the car park. Previosuly we've had to queue, so that was a Good Start. Camera was the Pentax K-3 II with the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens, plus the 70mm f/2.4 Limited for a few shots, but a prime can be a bit restrictive at this sort of event, so it was soon back to the zoom. A selection of images today, and for this blog I'll concentrate of pictures of people, all having a good time dressing the part, dancing and sometimes even singing. There were even the planes to look at as well, but those can wait for another blog.

A Butterfly Flutters By

More than one butterfly as we were in the Butterfly House in Stratford-on-Avon. Armed with the Pentax K-3 II and the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens I was not concerned about the lens or camera being damaged by the high humidity, although pleasant su...

A photographers dream, always something to photograph and models who don,t mind posing Smile
Am I correct in thinking the K3 ii is full frame, or am I confused?

The K-3 is crop sensor, APS-C format.
