Right now it's probably not the best weather to announce a photographic competition. But yes, it's pretty straightforward:-

Post pictures from the event here and we'll pick a deadline, whereupon judging will be carried out and I've had a little whisper that a prize may be available.

I'd like to see some aerial photos of the event too so that category is the one with the real challenge. I think we can guarantee that the vast majority will be taken from the ground though.

As an added bonus the best photos will find there way onto the Greenacres website to be kept there to live on in posterity.

You never know, if some live up to Graham's high standards, some could even make it to the magazine?

I might just get my keyfob camera in the Mamselle for a fly-past video (maybe a swoop-past is more appropriate). Is the competition open to videos as well Chris?

Cheers

Danny

Hi Danny

Considering the weather forecast I think we'd better open the comp up to anything at all that anyone wants to enter.

I'm still keen to see some aerial shots from a still camera, but why not, let's have some video.

It's a bit of fun after all.

Ken, that Spit still has it's undercarriage up! Is it a low pass, or just a small funfighter spit? Great picture though.

well mine aren't of aircraft at all but they are of some pretty important characters, one is Roisin asleep in the tent 2.75 milliseconds after her head hit the pillow, only 3 hours after her bed time.

The other is of a couple from the Northern Dept......Ken and Weaz

Tim they are excellent shots, this thread though was intended for photos from the RCM&E/Greenacres 2012 event.

I think yours would fit very well on the thread:-

What's the photo of which you're most proud?

I could brighten the cygnet up however I think this photo better reflects the mood of the weather at the time:

Plenty of good DR1 photos about so here's one from a different angle:

Now a couple of not brilliant on quality photos but I like them all the same.

The idea that the DR1 is heading to intercept the stryker I find appealing:

Finally, there has to be one of an Astrohog and here it is:
