Your pictures from this event Ron are excellent , and very moving. I have read a lot about the bomber crews and your pictures sum up the mood of that period brilliantly. Were there many photographers at the event, and how did you manage to get the crew to stand still when you needed it? Or did you take turns at who called the shots?
How ever it was done, these are great pictures!

To think that these guys would have to go through this mental torment night after night.I doubt we will ever see such bravery again. And I hope we never have to.

I actually prefer this to the POTW upload (on which many congratulations), it's less film set, more personal exploration. I'm afraid I cannot suspend disbelief with these events, they are re-enactments, but the lighting set-up was stunning!

Your thoughts stand up well with your image here Ron.
Hard to do a nights work without thinking of the consequences for yourself other crew members or the people on the ground where the payload will fall.

The light, smoke and slow shutter speed give an amazing atmosphere to this closer shot.

Best of the shots so far. More personal. The mist seems to form a barrier between the pilot and plane - a bit like a dream sequence.

In my opinion, this series is the best you have ever done, Ron.
Congrats on the whole series, and the POTW.
Well deserved.
