looking down on the arrows!

Had the Red Arrows in town today went up the mountain and tried to get some different shots looking down on them.









the Irish Air Corp aircraft made a low slow pass






Also got the usual looking up.

Super, Wee Man


And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up
They were dead ahead

Re: looking down on the arrows!

The straightened crop works very well.

Nice series and good choice of viewpoint

Re: looking down on the arrows!

Thanks all. With walking back down and then going out I hurried posting without checking. All seem to have the same tilt will have to watch out for it in future.

Re: looking down on the arrows!

Great shots.

Fascinating to see them from a different perspective.

Reminds me of when I lived in the Lake District and it was possible to look down on the Tornados doing their low flying exercises through the valleys.

Re: looking down on the arrows!

A lovely series of a much photographed subject. The unusual viewpoint adds greatly to the interest and makes your shots stand out from the usual pictures we normally see.
Thanks for sharing.

Great shots - shows that advance planning and making an effort really pays off.
