South West Airfield Pics - August 06



  Citigo
Not too many this time (every time I looked at a car to take a pic I spent a further 2 minutes cleaning my eyes out, got 300 pics instead of the usual 700+) so they are all in one album here. As usual the red cars have the most pics because they are much easier to photograph, so lots of clio_head and Clarkie's 5!

As always if you have any specific requests for any of the pics (full size originals, crops, whatever) just give me a shout and I will be happy to sort it out.

Videos to follow in a few days, got 2Gb of that to sort through.

A few of my favourites...

























As I always get asked, I used a Panasonic FZ20. This time with a circular polarizer attached, worked wonders as I had it set up to cut through reflections in the windscreens. Last outing for the old boy, changing to a Sony R1 soon.

wicked pics chris mate...were did you go on the way home?
A303, forgot to say I would be heading that way, pretty quick route back to mine.

Ads: no drag shots, had packed the camera up by then as Tucks forced me to run S25!

Jim: will have a look through and post some up if I've got any. Just downloading 850 Castle Combe pics from today to my PC so it's a little on the slow side.

Ah, course mate, I should know you were running, I was sat beside you!

I wonder how many people have a shot of Cliohead pulling a face or a silly run!?!

I was waiting for it to hit you! Thinking when I got home that I should have got the video camera out for the drag, you could have filmed Tucks as I drove alongside him in our synchronised 0-100 display :)

That would have been cool, especially considering how close it was and the faces he was pulling! A true Kodak moment.
