Re: Vulcan take off B&W

I'd second that comment from Linda. You just have to see it flying really awesome.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

I have not seen nor felt a Vulcan take off in more years than I care to remember but that shot brings it all back...

Suggestions for (possible) improvement;
chop a bit off the bottom
add a vignette
tone down the bright area below the plane

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

I second everything that's been said so far - it's a top class shot. Well done! If I were to nit-pick, I'd like to see it a tad darker from the wings down and seeing a bit more detail of the heat haze from the engines in the lighter areas of sky underneath.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Oh the joys of aviation photography, the cutbacks and the English weather, and thank god for modern digital photography and computer editing!
Love the shot, probably made all the better for you by the trials and tribulations that went into getting it! That wing looks so like its made with paper!
And as said with others, just love the Vulcan and some very old memories now of their rooftop escapades where I used to live, in a village on a ridgeline between the Pennines and Newcastle.

Regards
Chris

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Lovely shot. I've tried a few and they're OK, so I know how difficult it is.
There is one thing missing though..........the howl.
I saw it at East Fortune and Leuchars a couple of years ago. Awesome.
Its the only aircraft to do it and it just makes your hair stand on end.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Very nice shot, like others I which it was mine.

I can remember this on it's 1st public air show down at RAF Waddington, the sight, the sound of the aircraft going down the runway did bring a tear to my that day.

But I have some shots with it in formation with the Lancaster that day if I can find them.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Not much of a heads-up... but HRH will be visiting Sunderland and Durham on the 18th July and lo-and-behold we should have a fly past of the vulcan.. to be followed hopefully on Saturday 21 and |Sunday 22 at the Sunderland Air Show with more of the same.

Back in the 1960s I twice saw a V bomber drop a full load of 22x 1,000lb bombs. The first was on Salisbsury Plain and the second in the South China Sea - mega impressive but I didn't have a camera handy.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

I think a bit cropped off the bottom is better but that is a minor point, bloody brilliant image!

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Christ i dont know where to start I dont think i have ever had so much interest in one of my images. Thanks to all who have commented. I did not realise how much the vulcan bomber means to people.
I suppose if i had one wish it would be to see all three v bombers( victor valiant and vulcan ) flying in formation with a brace of lightnings, never going to happen but it does not hurt to dream. Again thanks for looking and commenting. ATB Martin.
