  • The Shuttleworth Collection

    We had an interesting day at the Shuttleworth Collection on Sunday.

    The collection was started by Richard Shuttleworth. His mother stopped him racing cars as it was to dangerous so he took up flying.

    He crashed his plain in to a tree and killed himself.

    Ho, to be rich and bonkers

    All hand held I am afraid as we was with a big group and I think if I set up a tripod for ever shot I would be shot in the more literal sense.

    Here are couple of image from the day.



    1929 Comper C.L.A.7 Swift

    This is one of Richard Shuttleworth own plains and was raced in India



    This is a 1928 De Havilland DH 60X Moth also owned by Richard Shuttleworth as it was the plain he learnt to fly in.



    You've guessed it Richard Shuttleworth Car a 1937 Railton



    Thanks for looking

    There is a couple more shots on flickr

    Might be handheld but they are still nice crisp shots. Lovely stuff.

      What a coincidence.
      We went there Monday.

      Will post a few shots later if you have no objection.

      All also taken hand held, with an E-450 and 14-42.

        Well I be. I will be really interested to see your photos. I had to have the ISO up to 1600 in some of the hangers. The light was all over the place and that was with the 14 - 52mm F2.8 I am going to order a flash defuser for my FL36 and try working with some flash.

        I would like to go on a flying day. I am sure I will be a wealth of great shots

          O.K.

          I have not had chance to do any processing, so this is as they came off the card.


          F3.5 1/25th sec ISO 200


          F4.1 1/8th sec ISO 200


          F3.5 1/20th sec ISO 200

          I have to say the sun was shinning outside and quite a bit of light was comeing through the skylights.

            Lovely shots. You did do well to get it down to ISO 200 I do find it hard work in changeable light some times it was light and then suddenly the shutter will drag.

            It is a fascinating place. By anther strange twist my camera club is plaining a visit in to weeks time for the Swiss garden.

            I have had a look at your flickr and really enjoy you shots it nice to see a fellow E450 user making very good use of that camera.

                I am thinking about offering up an E Group meet there this spring It has a coffee shop and would be an ideal meeting place with plenty to photograph.
