Photos from the Airbourne airshow in Eastbourne, Sussex
August 17, 2009
Recently I treated myself to my first digital SLR camera, a Canon EOS450D (or Rebel XSi for those in the U.S.). I’m getting to grips with it at the moment, learning all the various settings, which is really interesting compared to my old point and shoot. On Sunday we went to the Airbourne airshow at Eastbourne in East Sussex and of course I took my camera. It’s a great annual event that features the likes of the Red Arrows, a Eurofighter, aerobatic displays and classic WWII fighters. Here are a few of my better shots that I’ve cropped down to blog size. Warning, large images (hence only showing the first on the blog index).
A good day out and next year I’ll watch it all from Beachy Head. So many of the planes either start or end their display by passing close by the cliffs so it’s an excellent place for photographing them!
