About this piece

2017 – Herne Bay – UK

One Dimensional

The Herne Bay Airshow is performed out at sea along the coast in front of thousands of people that line the promenade.  Although I had been photographing for quite a few hours I was a little disappointed with the results, as it was all looking very much the same. Aircraft coming and going, flying along the coast in front of the spectators, all a bit one dimensional for my liking.

One Hundred and Eighty Degrees

With things now drawing to a close I decided to walked back along the deserted beach away from the crowds. The sun was now dipping low into the sky, which much later produce a spectacular sunset. Then suddenly from over my right shoulder the Red Arrows thunders pass, preforming a tight (hand-brake) one hundred and eighty degree turn right in front of me.  Luckily I had the correct lens on the camera and the setting were good to get one shot fired before they streaked back off over my right shoulder.  I have totally forgotten all about the big finally with a Red Arrows display. However, as far as I am concerned I was in the right place at the right time to capture the kind of shot that I had been waiting for all day.
