Superb shot

Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken at the end of a small commercial/military runway in Southern Spain.
Time
It was taken at about 11.30am when the Display Team were practising.
Lighting
It was a sunny day with clear blue sky.
Equipment
I used my Nikon D56200 with 55-300mm lens.
Inspiration
I had watched them do their display practise many times and was able to get to the end of the runway when they landed.
Editing
Minimal editing, just contrast and a bit of saturation....also slight sharpening.
In my camera bag
Batteries, cleaning kit, camera and lenses and remote.
Feedback
I watched where the planes came in and at what time of day before I went on the shoot. I think it is always better to do a reccé in these sort of situations so that you can be in the right place at the right time.
