Re: London Heathrow Nikon D810 test 13-05-22 Part 1

Barcelona, 13th & 16th May 2022

I spent 4 days in Barcelona last weekend for my nephew's wedding and managed a few photos as we arrived and had about 2 1/2 hours when we departed, some interesting subjects but the heat haze restricted my photographic range leaving a few gems un-captured including lots of biz jets when we arrived. ...

It was still enjoyable and I spent far more time watching aircraft with the naked eye rather than through a camera lens than I normally do. I still got a g...
