Behind The Lens

Location
Avro Vulcan B.Mk2 XM655 at Wellesbourne, Warwickshire
Time
When I turned up on site it was during a rainstorm. Honestly standing there in the wet and the wind we almost gave up. However, the rain passed and slowly but surely the weather front passed over the airfield and just as the sun was starting to set it cleared the tail of the cloud and gave us about five minutes of golden glory.
Lighting
Patience and persistence.
Equipment
Taken handheld lying on the wet floor with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EF24-70mm f/2.8L
Inspiration
The photo opportunity was created by TimeLine Events in the UK
Editing
Nothing other than the standard Lightroom enhancements with some distractions removed in photoshop.
In my camera bag
For 2017 I have moved away from Canon and started using Micro FourThirds.
Feedback
Follow Museums on Social media, this image was taken during a photo charter organised by TimeLine Events, but museums also host their events on occasions.
