Aviation Photo

Here's a picture my brother took: a friend of us in his Yak55. Big sky and small plane, and watching his show was like science turned into art.

And this one is called "the gazer":

I like the way he developes a different view on everydays scenes...

In my days in professional photography in the 70s, my hero was Sam Haskins.

May I present to you the brilliance in photography of this girl.

No, not the girl pictured (which is Anoushka Shankar - sitar player and Pandit Ravi Shankar's daughter; or better still, Norah Jones' half-sister), the one who took the photo.

The portraits she takes are damn good. Also, Colour Street.

Also, I took this a couple of months back: It is a panorama of ten images, laid out in two rows of five pics. Wish I could put up a full size version.



And this one is four pics in one row.

My scanner does not do justice to this stunning photograph.

Here's the link to the site I mentioned in my post. It's an aviation board, but there are shots of some awesome scenery.

A very famous photo taken quite a few years ago. Sadly she has not aged gracefully.

Took this last year at Knowsley Safari Park. They wouldn't shift off the bonnet until they spotted a Range Rover. They were last seen removing it's rear wiper...

Technically not that good, but I took this, in Tatton Park, about an hour ago.

Great photos.

For some pretty stunning helicopter photos, I suggest a trip over to the Rotorheads forum. It won't be a quick visit, though. You'll likely be hooked by the 200 pages of mostly amateur--and remarkable--helicopter shots.
